Phil. Mar. 13. 1824
A small balance ($4 25/100) has remained for a considerable time to your credit on the Books of Mr Carey & son, & we apprehend has escaped your attention.—It shall be paid in any way you may desire.—
We have had in contemplation to print a new & handsome edition of your notes on Virginia, presuming it will meet your approbation—In the long time that has elapsed since its first publication, it is possible that you may have desired to make some alteration in it, & now mention the subject, with the view of affording you the opportunity so to do, if you desire it
