Your favor of the 19th. was duly received. I have applied where Mr. R. got your Stockings and find they are all sold.

I should before this have sent you Mr. Anthony’s receipt for the 28 bundles of nail-rod that are down, and which I have delivered—but he is from home, and his Clerk refuses to grant a receipt, as he says he has received no instruction upon the subject. This information I should have given you sooner, but Mr. A has been expected from day to day ever since I received your letter; I however think...
