From Caleb Swan, 3 May 1800

Philadelphia May 3d. 1800


I have received your letter of the 1st. Inst. enclosing a duplicate of yours to Capt. Hyde of the 11th. April Ulto. relative to his accounts. I have delivered this letter to Mr. Hyde, who informed me that he received the original, but had been so unwell as to be unable to write an answer.

Since I wrote you on the subject I find that Mr. Hyde made a partial settlement of his accounts at the Accountant’s Office in May 1798, which, reduces the balance now standing to his debit to 72.788 98/100 Dollars.
