Permitt me to call to your recollection, that about three years past, you obliged me exceedingly by a letter you wrote to the Havanna, upon the subject of a very large sum of money attached there, my own property; Your letter I have good reason to believe had at the time its due effect, & about 12 or 14 months thereafter a Judgement was obtained to my satisfaction, but my opponents (the...
I had the honor to address you yesterday at the request of our esteemed friend Mr P. Carr , in which was enclosed a letter for his Bro. informing of the alarming indisposition of P.C. & requesting his Bro. S.C. to visit Baltimore, all which I now confirm; & sorry indeed am I to add, that in my opinion, appearances are still more unfavourable to a speedy recovery. The Doctors, Brown &...

Mr. Glendy called upon me & to whom I handed the same; I confess it woud have given me much pleasure to have accompanied him to Washington, but from the contents of your letter I delay for the present that Journey, altho’ I regret the satisfaction & pleasure which I loose by not being with you tomorrow...
Do you forget promises, or do I recollect what never happened? I think you were to send me a package (of whatever size they are from 1. to 200 ℔) of Moka coffee, and a box of Florence wine as a sample with permission to ask for more if I found it good. if this was not so, I will pray you now to send me those articles by any vessel coming to this place or it’s vicinity. I left your friends in...
You do not forget promises, but I omitted to do what I am now about to say; & for which I beg your forgiveness. Soon after my return from Washington, Mrs. H left Baltimore, & she having under her own immediate care the Florence wine, I was at a loss to get at the quantity on hand, & she now tells me there are not more than two boxes, & perhaps only one, which shall be sent by the first vessel...
