Be so good as to deliver my Merino Lamb to the Bearer hereof.—

Some time ago, I would gladly have taken back the Ewes which I sent to Monticello on Colonel Fontaines account cou’d I have obtain’d permission of his Executors—but it is no longer desirable to me as I have purchased some full blood’d Merino’s

I am sir Yours most respectfully

John H. Cocke
