Monticello Sep. 19. 07.
As it is out of my power to settle with mr Shoemaker without information on the worth of the articles about which I wrote to you, & I have no opportunity of obtaining the advice of any person acquainted with the subject but yourself. I send the bearer therefore express in hopes you will by his return let me know what you think of them.
In a settlement with the administrator of Hancock Allen, it is become necessary to prove the paiment of the 100. D. I left with you while you were at work on my mill, to be paid to him. your certificate will satisfy the administrator; only be as particular as you can in fixing the date. Accept my best wishes.
