Mrs Flinders
near Spilsby

              London Febry 11th 1808

To Mrs Flinders

            I had the honour of receiving your letter on the 9th
and also the inclosed bill of five pounds for which I most humbly
thank you; although I cannot but reflect upon it for ^ your kind-
-neƒs and have accepted of it, yet it was much against my
inclination for so doing . — Before I left the Isle of France, cap-
-tain Flinders
made me a present of 100 dollars, and would
paid ^ also my paƒsage home; but the latter I did refuse, and
embarked as a sailor frome [sic] there.
            According to your request I went to Mr Standert
with your compliments, and he gave me leave to take the
things you mentioned; and which I inclose in the parcel.
That is 3 table spoons, 1 large gravy spoon, 5 tea spoons, 1 pair
of sugar tongues; [sic] a small box containing 1 necklace, 1 locket
and 4 silver Indian coins: captain Flinders sealed these coins
