Va £41.1.6 sterling—& their letter to Mr Gilmer—I also send you a letter from Dr Boswell informing us of his having forward’d the 2 Boxes of Minerals the receipt of which you have been informed of—I have replied to his letter acknowledging the receipt of the minerals & as There are many applications to know if the Law Professor will probably commence his lectures this session—If not asking too much will you do me to favor to inform me on the subject—Be pleased to send your receipts for the Bills of Exchance that I may file them with my vouchers as the time is approaching for me to Make up my accounts. I should [. . .] done myself the pleasure of calling on you before this, but for the increase of the difficulty of hearing which renders it unpleasant to be in company—I therefore beg you will not think it’s for the want of respect I have not waited on you—I hope to hear you are geting the better of your malady & that we may look for the pleasure of your company here ’ere long—with the highest respect I am sir your Obt Sevt
