Thomas Coke to Mr Thos Williams, Brecon, So. Wales, 17th January 1786
Coke is writing to his attorney Thomas Williams about an account of his financial affairs and raising £800, a great deal of money at the time. It would seem that Williams' house or estate was mortgaged to Coke, and Coke is assuring Williams he is not expecting Williams to pay all or part of the £800 out of this sum.
There is a sense of urgency and also a warning in this letter, as Coke explains his travel plans to Jersey, Guernsey and America, and his need for money. He concludes:"...I shall be in full expectation of receiving an Account of my Affairs. Indeed, I shall take it unkind, if You don't send me the Account...".
