Dear Sirs: Guy Park October 29th-1774

I do assure you that it is with much Concern I find from your letter of last Month, that you have not hitherto succeeded in Obtaining Satisfaction for your late Losses occasioned by Lieut. Robert's affair; & I am not a little Surprized at it, as General Gage appears to have Strongly seconded my late worthy Father in Law's Representation of the Case. However, I am far from thinking you will fail of Success in the end, tho' you may owe it to repeated, Solicitations for which reason, what the General recommended should no doubt be follow'd by making use of good Offices of some active Friend in London, who will not let the matter rest; for they require Spurring in all public Offices.

On this Occasion I heartily wish it was in my power to give you much hopes from my Endeavor; but besides the uncertainty of my continuing in Office, it has no Connexion with the Treasury, neither have I any acquaintance with any of the present Board, or their Secretary.- If I can think of any Friend in London, that may be of use, I shall recommend it to his attention, when I next write; but as I expect shortly to hear from them, respecting my self, I shall be then much more able to determine how far it is probable I can Serve you, & if I can, be assured I will; for I consider your case in the light of a friend, & should be very happy as well as ready to administer any assistance that might contribute to relieve it, & should anything further occur necessary for your Information, before I write next to England, you shall hear from me Respecting it- I wish you & Mrs Wetherhead all happiness as I am. Dear Sir.- Your friend & Servt. G Johnson

To Mr Wetherhead
