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
R W Putnam Esq
