From Patrick Gibson

Richmond 3d May 1815


I wrote you on the 28th Ulto and have since received your favor of the 29th inclosing an order on the Commr of loans for $8580 payable in treasury notes, on application at the office I find that Mr Nelson has none on hand, but expects a supply shortly—With regard to the taking up your note with them I have only to repeat what I mention’d in my last, that it is not possible to do so except at a discount

Respectfully Yours

Patrick Gibson
