George Wythe sends John Hatley Norton a list of the suits Wythe has prosecuted for him and the fees Norton paid for each.
John Hatley Norton esq;
Dear Sir On My books is stated an account as below:
dr. John Norton eq. in account with George Wythe-
1769 to a fee for prosecuting your suits against Holt Richeson 2.15.0
to a fee for prosecuting your suit against Whitinge and Clayton 2.12.6
1770 to a fee for prosecuting your suit against Boswell 2.12.6
to a fee for defending you at the suit of Booker in Chancery
Why the last article was not carried out, i do not recollect. but the amount of the others very nearly equals the balance with which i stand charged in the books J. Norton & sons.
be pleased to let me know if this is satisfactory or not.
present my good wishes to mrs. Norton and her young ladies; and believe me to be,
