George Town 15 Augt. 1805.
I am honored with the Presidents favor of the 12th—at all events, I could not think of leaving Town untill after the 9th & 11th. Sept. have passed over—and the two Notes of $2000 & 1600—were safely withdrawn—
mean while, I shall endeavour to avail my self of the first favorable Occasion, that offers, to pay The Revd. Mr. Pryce $4 to purchase 6th portable Soup (Chicken or Veal not mentioned) as well to subscribe to Mr. Corkles paper.
at last, the President is presented with a/c of my receivals & payments, at B.B. Washington—I inclose also my July a/c store & Cask and $91.41—For this & next Mo: of small Amts. I shall defer, and include in One a/c—
I am happy to learn the President have returned from the fatiguing Journey of Visiting his Bedford Plantation—and of plentiful Crops, health, of the good family &a.
From the Presidents silence respecting Mr. Burwell, I flatter myself, that Gentleman had felt no ill effects from the Thunder storm that threatened a relapse of his former complaint.—
With every good wish for your health & happiness—I am, most Respectfully. The Presidents—very Obed: humble. servant,
The President US: In. BB. US. at Washington—with John Barnes
