Baltimore December. 9th. 1807
I have duly received your much esteemed favor of The 7th. Instant enclosing a Check on The Bank for 233.⅓$—200$ of which fully discharges your acceptance of Mr Perrys draft, & The Balance of 33.⅓ I will Credit Mr. Kelly and advise Him Thereof.
I am sorry I gave Mr. Shepherd a letter to you to expect payment of Mr. Perrys draft—He was on collection Business, and it was merely done to gratify Him in an opportunity of seeing you, which is The most candid Apology I can make.
With Sentiment of The highest respect, I am, Sir, Yr. mo. obt. Servant
MHi: Coolidge Collection.
