Langhornes Tavern Octr 5.
Doctor Robert H Rose the Uncle of my Daughter has presented to her a Piano which was left in Orange by him, when he removed to the West—We are at a loss to know where it is—whether at Montpelier or Mrs Nelly Willis’s—Excuse the liberty I take of requesting you to inform me by letter addressed to this place whether the Piano is now at Montpelier or not. I should not trouble you with this enquiry if I knew of any one who could have given me the information—Respectfully Your obedient Servant—
Wm R Coupland
