From John Francis Mercer

Decr. 20. 1799

Dear Sir

It gives me the greatest uneasiness to say that I have not as yet recd. 200$ Cash from my sales of $5000.—which was what I sold of about 12000$ offered. I shall wait only two days longer, when if matters are no better I will go on to Balto. on which place I have drafts & try to get them discounted & forward you the Money before the Assembly rises. Yrs. with great truth

John F. Mercer

RC (DLC). Docketed by JM.
