Dear sir,

I was duely favor’d with yours of the 19th current: & should, have replied to it by last mail, but had not heard from the dft: for $75, on Th: Leiper & Son, which I had forwarded for payment; by last nights mail, however, recd it back again, the Messrs: Leipers declining to honor it, because they doubted the genuineness of it—I now return it to you under cover—you have been at no other expense with it than postages back & forward—

With great respect Dr sir Yours very Truly

B. Peyton
