To William R. Putnam

New York Aug 18. 1800


I lately took the liberty to request your Agency in regard to five shares of land, which I have in the Ohio Company purchase,1 & sent you Bank Bills for sixty Dollars to pay the taxes which I understand have been heretofore assessed. My letter went to the care of Col Hamtramck,2 Pittsburgh.

Lest any accident should happen I write to you again to request that you will at all events make an arrangement for satisfying the taxes & I will immediately remit what may be necessary.

With consideration & esteem   I am Sir   y Obedt sr
