My Dear Sir

I am sorry to learn that a certain heresy makes a progress. But there must be a portion of nonsense in human affairs—I bear in mind my promise to you.

Pray send me a Memorandum without delay of the payments which you h⟨ave⟩ made me on Account of Mr Church1 with their dates. I am forwarding him my account,2 and I want this memorandum to Check my entries.

Yrs. sincerely

A Hamilton

J Wadsworth Esqr
