Washington Jan. 19. 06
I have to pay 35. D. to Daniel Bradley at Fairfax court house and percieving that in the passage of letters between us by post there has been great inexactitude, I take the liberty of asking you to recieve the inclosed sum of 35. D. and to pay it to his order. I have by a letter of this day informed him of this measure & inclosed him an order on you, hoping you will excuse this free use of your intermediation. Accept my friendly salutations & assurances of esteem & respect.
