Dear Sir

I am this moment favored with your letter. Last night I received yours of the 8th. Instant enclosing Ro. Snelsons order on Mr. James Brown for £20.0.2 which I expect to receive tomorrow. I am obliged to you for mentioning so fully the affair of Coleman. If any thing of the kind be existing, I imagin it must be with Mr. Skipwith and Mr. Eppes. I expect to see Mr. Coleman, or to hear from him soon. When I get to the bottom of the business I will inform you. I am sorry to trouble you so much with our matters. I am with Esteem Dear Sir Your obliged and Mo hue servt.
