[As] the Agents say nothing to the contrary [I] conclude that the balance in their hands is sufficient to meet this bill & that they should therefore be instructed to accept & pay it? They might at the same time be asked what portion, if any, of the loan of £50,000 wd remain unexpended afterManuscript image paying this bill?
VJ 17 Dec
Yes. But observe also that in requesting authority to make any payment or accept any bill they shd always state whether they have funds for the purpose.
