Sir,

As Treasurer of the Agricultural Society of Albemarle, it has become my duty to forward to each member a statement of his account with the Society. You perceive by the one above that you are indebted to the Society fifteen dollars, which if remitted by mail to Hart’s Store, Albemarle, will be very certain to come safely to hand, or if it miscarries will be at the risk of the Society.

I am, your obedient servant,
John Coles
Treasurer of the Agricultural Society of Albemarle.
