He did not.

Did Mr˙ Marsden send the Linens, and a parcel of Shoes, with an invoice thereof, accompanied with a letter, to Mr˙ Humphrey Richards, signed Marsden, Maxwell, and Company, or not ?

He did not, but there was a letter directed, to me, written by Mr˙ Marsden' s young man, (John Elm) in their name.
