your Afflicted Friend
Mr Adams desired me to ask you to mention to mr Hinkly that he would be in Boston upon his return from court & pay the passage of the Boys. he has money due which he expects then to receive without borrowing for them. will you be so kind as to Send in to mr Brisler & know if he has put up the articles he was to get when he delivers them it will be proper to take a Receit of the Captain to whose care they are to be committed—
