Monteagle Feby 14th 1821.
My Necessity is such as to compel me now to call on You, for the Amt between us about —, this I do, with great reluctance fearing it may not be entirely convenient to you, to spare that amt. at this time, owing I suppose to my misfortune, I was not called on at Christmas. As was expected, but the call is made now, & under such circumstances. as to compell me to advance the Money—in a very short time, or forfeit my word & Credit. which I hold more dear then life, Your Draft. on Bernard Peyton at Sixty days woud answer every purpose, & I will know with what pleasure it woud receavd by him.
