Montpellier Decr. 18. 1826
At the request of Mr Reynolds Chapman, a very respectable neighbour, I take the liberty of making him known to you, for a purpose which he will particularly explain. I understand that as Executor to Doctor Shepherd, who was another respectable neighbour he has occasion, in adjusting a transaction relating to the Estate of the latter, to obtain some information from the President or Cashier of the Bank of the U. S. and I could not err in saying to him that any proper application to either would be received with the attention due to it. I pray you to accept Sir the assurance of my high Esteem & cordial respect.
