I hand under cover a paper from the Collector of the customs, which it is necessary. you shall be qualified too before a magistrate & return—
I have paid the Collector his charges on the Books, amounting to $24.42, which is at your debit.
I hope to see you at your own House in a few days, & in the mean time remain, in haste,
