Washington July 5. 08.
On the reciept of your letter I wrote to mr Bacon to send me the account which I had left with him to convince you of the errors of addition in it. it is now before me.
|your addition makes||the debits||£53-10-1|
|the true addition makes the||debits||£51-8-7|
which sum I paid to the post office to your credit. I will carry this account with me to Albemarle, for which I shall set out in about a fortnight, and there you will be able to satisfy yourself of the correctness of the addition. I present you my salutations.
