George Town 19 Decr. 1805 Thursday
On my Return last night from an absence of two or three Days at Alexandria (which circumstance will be my apology for not having sooner replied) I found your esteemed Letter of the 17h enclosing your note for 1000$—I have with great Pleasure given it my Endorsement & put it into Bank this morning it will be discounted to day—, and the money will be ready at one o’clock—, at which time I shall be at Bank—and will pay it to your Messenger, or will send it to you in any way you may direct by Return of the Bearer
Be pleased to command me on all similar occasions & to believe me with great Respect & Esteem Sir
Your very obt Hu Sevt
