Washington Oct. 9. 06
Messrs. Robert Hooe & co.
It escaped my recollection yesterday that it was the day on which my acceptance of mr Jarvis’s bill was become due. I now inclose you a check on the bank of the US. at this place for it’s amount, 242.71 presuming the course of your transactions makes money in this bank as convenient as in Alexandria: if it does not, on saying so by return of post I will draw the money myself & remit it. Accept the assurances of my respect
