From John V. Henry1
[Albany, December 17, 1803]
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
