Washington Oct. 19. 07.
When I settled here with mr Shoemaker, I told him you had informed me you had an order on me from him, of which however I was not in possession, and would therefore, pay the balance found due from me (60. some odd dollars) either to him or to you. he said I might pay it to him and he would settle it with you on his return, & I did so. I intended to have informed you of this the last post, but in the multiplicity of business it escaped me. present me affectionately to mrs Randolph, and accept assurances of my great friendship & respect.
