Office Bank U States Richmond Octo: 21st 1819
The receipt of your letter of the 17th inst: which I am to day favoured with; in bringing a confirmation of the ill report, which had reached me, of your indisposition; brings also an augmentation of that regret which had not yet left me, for having been compelled to distract you with so many unpleasant interruptions. It is of course, now again, peculiarly disagreable that I am obliged to make known to you that, as the final arrangement of the business have not been completed, the note of Wilson C. Nicholas Esqr endorsed by you, and payable yesterday at this office for $10.000 was necessarily passed though the formality of a protest, as you will be otherwise regularly informed.
Cordially hoping that, for your sake if not for my own, I may not have again to trouble you in this way.
