I have this moment received yours of yesterday with the deed to Mr Cottringer for which accept my thanks.

This being a debt of Mr...

I cannot account for your not having Answered the letter of which the preceeding is a Copy, in any other way than by supposing it did not get to your hands, it was written so long since as the 23d of May last & sent by Post, and is of so important a nature that I waited with Anxiety supposing however that the papers were preparing and that you delayed writing untill they were ready. I am...

I am willing to Sell it at a fair price to him if...
