Baltimo Octo 14th 1806
I beg leave to inclose you a d’ft received to day from Mr Hugh Lennox Agent of the United States at Kingston Jamaica. I have not pursued the usual course of presenting it to you by another, partly because I was not without a doubt that the business was misdirected. In following the same error by this address, motives of the greatest respect & regard have influenced me without an enquiry into any settled forms of etiquette.
If the bill is duly drawn, be pleased Sir to direct the payment in such manner as seems to you expedient; for which I shall wait your leisure & and convenience.
With respectful good will I remain, Sir Your frind
Jas. H McCulloch
