Head Qrs Prekeness July 26th 1780
Your Letter of the 19th accompanying 12 pr thread hose have came Safe to hand—the latter I fear are too small, but they must do.
I thank you for the trouble you have had about the Chariot—The Sum for which the old one sold and wch you say lyes in your hands you will be so good as to pay to Mr Washington’s order—first deducting the price of the Merseilles quilting, & the repairs to my Watch (by the inclosed ticket) which is every thing I Recollect of a private nature & that ought not to go to public acct.
My Compliments attend Mrs Mitchell and I am Dr Sir Yr most Obedt Servt
