From John Banister
Without place or date [15? Feb. 1781]. Encloses receipt for £5,250 “advanced for the Equipment of the Volunteer Horse in Lawsons Corps under an Express promise that I would be reimbursed the Succeeding Week.” Necessities are now so urgent that he hopes for early payment of this and also $2,700 “advanced the other day for Catrige Boxes.”
RC (Vi); 2 p.; undated; addressed and endorsed. Enclosure missing; see TJ’s reply, 17 Feb., which virtually fixes the date of the present letter as 15 Feb.
