From John Armstrong
New York August 31st. 1804.
Having occasion for five hundred dollars more than the amount of your late draft on the Treasury in my favor, I have been furnished with that sum by Gen. Theodorus Bailey of this city, and to reimburse him, have drawn a bill upon you, payable at sight, for the amount. I am Sir, with great respect, Your Obedient hum. servt.
