From Elias Vanderhorst, 13 September 1802
Bristol Sepr. 13th. 1802—
Since my last of the 1st. Insta. with ⟨d⟩uplicate, I have been honored with your obliging favor ⟨of⟩ the 26h. of July and thank you for the order you have been so kind as to give Mr. King for payment of my small demand.
Our Harvest here is now in Such forwardness ⟨as⟩ to leave us the fairest hope of its full completion in the ⟨cou⟩rse of a few days, and is undoubtedly very abundant, & which is said to be the case also on the European Continent in General.
Begging a reference to the enclosed paper & ⟨con⟩gratulating you on the happy termination of the dispute with Morocco, I remain with great respect Sir, Your most Obdt. & most H Servt.
