May 19. 1829—
Your letter communicating the sale of my flour was duly recd. but could not be sooner acknowledged. However short of our hopes I am sure that you have acted for the best; and it is quite propable that it has ended for the best. I thank you sir for your obliging managment of the business throughout and will now request that you will let me see the balance at my disposal—Oblige me by a further notice of my acct. with the Bank in the Turnpike debt. I write in bed & with that excuse for what needs excuse
I understand there are a few Bls. of flour say abt. 2 loads still to go down.
