From John V. Henry1

[Albany, December 17, 1803]

Dear Sir

I have paid the taxes & charges upon ⟨the⟩ lands in which you are interested described in the Comps certificate which you lately enclosed to me. As the tax of 1802 was unpaid I thought it best to discharge it also. The necessary voucher of these payments is herewith transmitted.

After crediting the Bank dft. of $950 I am according to the preceding statement in advance for you $174.69 for which sum I shall draw upon you whenever I shall have occasion to remit money to N York.

I am with great respect & esteem   Your ob serv

John V. Henry

Alexander Hamilton Esqr
