Dear Sir,

I received yours of April 30. Much Business has hitherto prevented my visiting your Creditors, with the Proposal you mention.10 But in a Week or two I expect a little Leisure, which I shall apply to that purpose. I wish it may prove successful, as I truly compassionate your Situation. I shall soon after let you know what may be expected from them. I am, Your Friend and humble Servant
