Washington May 25. 07.
On my arrival here I found some heavy bills drawn on me from Europe for wines & other supplies from that quarter which will occupy my spare funds for some time. this rendered it impossible for me to make you the first remittance of 100. D. for Perry which was for this month; and would render it more convenient to make both that & the one for June in the 1st. week of July, say 300. D. for the three months of May, June & July— will you be so good as to inform me whether this arrangement will suit you. I promised James Walker to answer for him as bail for Stewart for a year, here of Milinda but I have not been informed by him of the sum, time or person for paiment. I believe this was under your care. on your giving me the necessary information the remittance shall be made. I salute you affectionately.
