The enclosed letter is for a mrs Mary Dangerfield, & a miss Sarah Dangerfield on the subject of some negroes of theirs whom I hire. they live in Spotsylvania, somewhere below Fredericksburg; but where exactly, and what is their nearest post office I know not. as I think it probable this may be known to you, or readily learnt, I have so far presumed on your friendship as to put the letter under cover to you with a request to superscribe their proper post office, and have it put into that of Fredericksburg, or to give it a conveyance by any better means you may know of. Accept my friendly salutations and assurances of great esteem & respect.
