I inclose Mr Ladd’s report—I beg leave to invite your attentive perusal, and receive your remarks.—as to the balances amongst ourselves, we can adjust them to our satisfaction after a decree.—If you wish any exceptions taken, you can draw and inclose them to me.—I am at present inclined to think we had better not except. We can may call for a further account of Fleming’s estate— as I see no...
I wrote to you a few days ago, merely to acknowledge the receipt of your favor of the 27 th May , and to apprize you of its long passage, that I might stand before you acquitted of any charge of seeming delay in complying with your request, which I have since fulfilled with cheerfulness and pleasure, as I always shall do on any occasion to serve you.
