From Charles Yancey
Hopefull Mills 23rd Feby 1812
I sent you word by my son Ralph H Yancey, that I expected to be able to Supply You with Clover Seed; it has eventually turned out, that I cannot: & I have thought it best to Notify You, fearing a Reliance on me Might prevent a Supply from another Quarter. I am Respectfully, with Regard & esteem Your friend, & most Obedient Servant.
