Dear Sir

Two days after1 mine of the 8th your’s of the 3d came to hand. that will have informed you of every thing relative to Dr Cooper, and particularly that we should be ready to pay him the 1500.D. the 1st of May, I herein committed a mistake, for I should have said 750.D. in his letter of Oct. 25. 19. he proposed himself to recieve 750.D. the 1st of May 1820. and 750.D. the 1st of Jan. 1821. however as to the first sum for which you inclosed me the order we shall be enabled to pay it the 1st or 2d week of April, perhaps a part of it sooner, in the course of this month.   I have to thank you for mr Tilghman’s agricultural orations, and all your other kindnesses and shall have to trouble you ere long with my annual application to Paris & Leghorn. affectionately Your’s
