Monto Aug. 4. 23.
On the 7th of July I recd from mr Saml Garland a letter dated Lynchbg July 3. I had considered this as deciding that the must be paid within the course of the current year. myself and my grandson Th:J. R. (into whose hands I had committed all my affairs with full powers to transact them, age and debility obliging me to retire from them) had before determined on a large sale of property in Bedford about Christmas: and on the rect of this lre we had likewise determd that the whole of this debt should be paid of the at that sale. this will accdly be done to yourself, mr Garland, or any other holder of the bond, and I hope will be satisfactory
