From John Vaughan

Philad. 29 June 1822

D sir

On 24. I remd to M Dodge S Girards Bill for 960 fs

at 520/ for which I paid him 184. 61
I recd from Mr Peyton a remittance of 19620/ which leaves a balle in your favor of 11. 59
$ 196: 20

I advised that the letter for Dodge was mislaid.1 It has since been found & goes tomorrow via Havre—In future it would be well to send a Duplicate of the Directions when one might accompany 1 & 2nd Bill

I remain with respect D sir your friend
