From John Hoomes
Bowling Green May 12th. 1801
I have been from home for some time, or your two much esteemed letters would have been answered before this. I herein enclose you the draft on Mr. Barnes that you so obligingly sent me, & I will thank you either to send me bank notes, or a draft on Richmond as may be most convenient to yourself.
I am extreamly glad to find by your letter of the 17th. ultimo that you are pleased with the horse I sent you; I hope you will be so, with those horses sent you from Petersburg. I have been there lately, and from what I heard of thier price they ought to be good ones I am dear Sir with great esteem & respect yr Hble sevt
