Washington Oct. 23. 06.
The season now requires that I should lay in my winter’s stock of coal. I will therefore ask the favor of you to send me on 1200. bushels with as little delay as possible, for indeed the want of it begins to be urgent. on this day fortnight I will make you a remittance to cover this article as well as the balance due at the close of the last quarterly account. Accept my affectionate salutations.
