New York May 6th 1824
I have received both packets you forwarded. I arrived here this morning at 10 o’clock, and have already taken a birth, on board the Cortes, (Capt. De Cost) which sails on Saturday (the 8th) at 10’ o’clock for Liverpool.
Permit me to suggest that if the Bursar has any option in the matter, he would find the Bank of Virginia more prompt and liberal in its dealings than the F.rs.
