Dear Sir,

In settling some business with Mr Garrett to day I find (for the first time I have known it) $200— paid to Mr Giacomo Raggi which is that amt more than he should have recieved—- In your statement (to Mr Garrett) of Mr Appletons acct May 8h 1822. You state it thus

Proceeds of former remittance $1239 .00
to be paid to Giacomo Raggi 200 .00
applicable to the capitals $1039 .00
Whole cost of Capitals 1900  
bal: to be remited clear of } 861

Mr Garrett called on me for a draft for seven hundred dollars which was given Without showing me your statment, Consiquintly I did not know of Mr Appletons being directed to pay $200 to Giacomo Raggi, therefore never charged him with it I give you the earlyest information I have of it that the error may be corrected if practicable - by Mr Appletons with holding it if he has not paid it hoping you are in a fair way of recovering from the effects of your fall I am Sir respectfuly yours

A. S. Brockenbrough
