Montgomery Ct House 20th Novr 1807
You will recollect that two days ago I addressed you for some releif in my unfornate situation. I thank you for your willingness to accomodate my necessities, But was so ashamed of my situation at that moment, that I could not call on Mr. Nicolas for the necessary certificate. My relation, which I alluded to, was James Brown of the House of Brown & Rives of Richmond.
With much Esteem Your Excellency’s Most Obt H S
James R Brown
