Monticello May 7. 07.
After deducting the price of Brown from the cost of the work you did for me there remained a balance due to me. I have since that had a couple of days work from one of your hands, and some bricks, of which I have no doubt they have rendered you account. I have had little to do here since, but the little I wanted in supplies of bricks it has not been convenient for your people to furnish. I am in hopes you will not think me unreasonable in now asking the favor of you to remit the balance between us to David Higginbotham at Milton or to myself with as little delay as you can. Accept my salutations & best wishes.
