Since my last misdated on the 22 or 23, I have recd. a letter from Mr. Peters saying that he had sent my obligation for a little over $1000. to the Bank in Richmond for collection. You will have no occasion therefore to enter into negociation with him on the subject. I shall endeavor to provide for the demand; but I really fear it may be impossible. Be this as it may, it will not lessen the extent, of what I wish you to accomplish as explained to you already. If I succeed in my endeavor it will be in a mode, transferring & procrastinating only the debt.
