Washington Nov. 6. 07.
Your account amounting to 30. D. tho’ recieved some time ago had escaped my attention. having occasion to make a remittance to mr Gelston I have included that sum with his, & must therefore ask the favor of you to call on him for it. the time of my retirement being now not very distant, I am beginning to retire from the paper reading. I cannot begin better than with the New York Evening post, of which in truth I have scarcely opened one for two years past. I will therefore pray you to discontinue forwarding them to me. Accept my salutations & respects.
