To John Hollins
Poplar Forest near Lynchburg. Apr. 8. 10
I recieved your favor just as I was setting out on a journey to this place, & learnt at the same time, the arrival of the plaister at Richmond. by this post I desire messrs Gibson & Jefferson of Richmond to remit you the amount, 80.40 D with which be pleased to accept my thanks for this & other favors.
On my way here I passed a day with mr Nicholas, Warren being on my road hither. he still suffers much with his rheumatism, rarely being able to leave the house. mrs Nicholas & the family were well. mr Carr was with me the day before I left home; just well enough occasionally to visit his neighbors, but often laid up. I salute you with friendship & respect.
