New York June 14th 1819
To oblige us one of the Banks here has consented to take our draft on Mr Gibson for $422..25 the Interest to the 15 Inst on the payment you have to make us on the 7 May 1820 of $2083..20— The draft will, according to their fixed rule, be passed to our credit upon advice of its payment in Richmond being received— Altho’ attended with delay, this arrangement saves you from a loss of about 1½ pCt, at which rate checks on Richmond are now selling—
