Dr Sir,

Above I hand a/c sales your flour on hand, at best prices going, which hope will be satisfactory—

I delivd your letter to Genl La Fayette, who leaves here tomorrow, for Monticello, & will dine with you on Thursday next—I sincerely regret that I cannot accompany him, as I had intended, Mr. Roane of the council, & son of the late Judge Roane, substitutes me—

Yours very Truly

B. Peyton
