Thare is at charlottesville a horse drover immediately from Missouerie with some chickasaw horses and one young mule he offers to take fifty dollars for the mule it is a tollerable good one, not of the smallest nor of the largeest Kind to its age it is 3 years old and well made for service.

I forgot to inform you that I have administrated on the estate of John Bacon whom I bought the negroe of above nine years sence he has never been herd of sence the perchase is presumed he must be dead and his estate seems to belong to his heirs which is his brothers. I expect it will soot for the paymt of the bond which was put into Mr Dawsons hands to come in with the amount which will de due to me at the fall. I believe the amount of sd bond is between 3 & 400 dollars besides interest.
