To John Chaloner
[New York, August 14, 1784]
I received in due time your letter of 14 of July.
The bills sent by you which have been paid and will be paid are
|on James & Alex Stewart1||£ 600|
|on Delafield2||149. 4|
|James Buchanan & Co||400|
|on Cap G. Geddes||23. 9.2|
The ballance due on the lot will be £1297.7.10 which bears interest at seven Cent. If you are in Cash on Mr. Church’s account, I shall be obliged to you as soon as possible to forward that ballance; the rather as from particular circumstances there is some little hazard in the title ’till the transaction is completed.
I inclose you Messrs. Nathaniel and John Traceys6 obligation to Mr. Church for Twenty five shares of bank Stock, agreeable to your request.
Mrs. Hamilton tells me that Mrs. Church informs her she has sent to your care a box of sheeting for her—and there is some other thing which she does not recollect for Mrs. Schuyler. She requests you will be so good as to forward these articles.
Mrs. H joins in compliments to Mrs. C.
Believe me to be With great regard Dr Sir Your Obed Servt
