To John Beckley
Philadelphia Apr. 17. 1798.
If Colo. Trigg will be so good as to furnish you the two hundred & forty dollars, I will undertake that it shall be repaid to him at Lynchburg the first week of July in such way as shall be satisfactory to him; on which subject I will confer with him for explanation, and conform myself to his wish. I will call on him the first moment in my power, or be glad to see him at my lodgings if he should have a moment to spare before I have. I am with esteem Dear Sir
Your friend & servt
