Williamsburg Nov. 14. 1781
I do myself the Honor to inform Yr Excellency that the business of the Merchant’s account & the sales of Hoaksley’s store are brought to a final close. The multiplicity of the Merchant’s accounts rendered the business more tedious than I apprehended. I am now on my way to Richmond, & will from thence transmit all the papers relative to either affair. [I left] the transmission till I shall arrive at Richmond that I May on the [route] dispose the papers for it with as little loss of time in prosecuting my [journey] to [overtake] Genl St Clair as possible. The amount of the debt [due the Rest] for the merchants accounts is £13,159.9.6 1/2 Sterling. The amount of the sum due on the sale of [Hoakesley’s] store is £7475.18.8 1/2 Sterling. I have the honor to be Yr Excellency’s most obedt servt
