A debt which has been contracted with mr Higgenbotham in my absence, has obliged me to assign to him my rents in Albemarle as they become due. I have hoped that by apprising you of this you might be able so to arrange your dealings with him as to have the paiment made convenient to you. I have informed him that your rent for 1807. is but 160. D. I tender you my best wishes. MHi : Coolidge...

M r Randolph will ride with you any day you please to the lands on Lego , & confer on the accomodation you propose. any thing which he thinks I might agree to without too much injury, I shall willingly agree to. In order to furnish you with proper evidence of the grounds which on Saturday last I agreed you should clear, I observe that the opening of the Upperfield over the road at Shadwell has...
