Edgewood. 8th April. 1824.
This will be delivered to you by my servant Archer, who comes down with the Horse you were so good as to lend me. I took the liberty to keep him longer than I promised, because on getting to Col. John Cole’s, I found both himself & his brother Tucker, together with their families, were setting out to see Lady Skipwith, & all their riding Horses, seemed to be in requisition. I shall remain at home but a few days, & then return to the lower country. It will be some time in the month of May before I arrive here with my family.
Joseph C. Cabell.
P.S. I will write to Mr Maclure from Williamsburg.
