"As to ye american Collection It seems as if you would (if call'd thereto) make a Notable Beggar but considering ye great expence that has lay upon us about ye meetg House &; a debt remaining of near 30 ⇑£ those of our people to whom I have mentioned it dont seem very forward to encourage it — I believe at least it must be defferd a little longer" —
