Richmond Jany 21. 97
My dear Uncle.
I recd your favor of the 10th during my confinement under a severe attack of the Pleuresy. I am now on the recovery, tho’ very weak, nor have I yet left my room.
The deed you wrote for is now enclosed, but I find it was not recorded within the time prescribed by Law.
I have received no answer to my letter respecting your Kanawa Lands. As that letter was interesting to you, I hope it did not miscarry.
Nancy joins me in Love to yourself & my Aunt. Believe me to be very sincerely My dear Uncle Your Affect. Nephew & much obliged Servt
