From William Barton

[Philadelphia], 24 Feb. 1792. Enclosing a transcript in Currie v. Griffin. For the April term of court, a writ of scire facias must now be issued against the garnishees, which, if TJ will direct Remsen to pay him 1 3/6;, he will obtain from the prothonotary and see that it is served in time. Immediately after the court convenes, interrogatories may be filed, and at the September term the case will be concluded.

RC (DLC); 2 p.; with Barton’s signed receipt, dated 1 Mch. 1792, for 13s. 6d. Pennsylvania currency received of TJ “for the purpose mentioned in this note”; endorsed by TJ as received 24 Feb. 1792 and so recorded in SJL.

TJ sent the enclosed transcript to Currie two days later (TJ to Currie, 26 Feb. 1792).
