Curcy is the Sum Received and no more; for the Insurance, and what regards that Article was charged upon presumptions, but as the Insurance was not Effected, He had Credit for so much, Also I gave Credit for the Commission, which concessions I made to obtain a settlement with him.         I beg leave to remark that there are in those Accounts Several Insurances similar to the above.
