I am however far advanced & think I can promise it to you tomorrow morning at farthest.— I send my Servant to give you this Information least you should expect it to day, please to return my Bills by him if they are accepted.—
I likewise send by him the Copies of my Accounts which please to leave in your Bureau ’till I can come & compare them with the original.—
My Wife joins me in dutifull & affectionate Respects. I am ever your
