I have had this day the honor of your’s1 inclosing yr. power of Substitution on behalf of Mr. Church. At present the Sale of Stock, & indeed every other Money transaction is nearly at a stand. The Produce of the State, & the Sale of Bills of Exchange will alone command it, untill we receive a Supply from Sea.

Mr. Constable2 has inform’d me of the purchase he had made of 20 Shares, & when they appear the transfer will be compleated.

I observe what you say respectg. the sale of what remains of Mr. Church’s Shares, & shall do what ever may be in my power to dispose of them whenever I receive the Certificates & your Orders to make the Sale. I am Sir with great respect

Yr. Obedt. Servt.
