Washington Dec. 15. 07.
A debt which has been contracted with mr Higgenbotham in my absence, has obliged me to assign to him my rents in Albemarle as they become due. I have hoped that by apprising you of this you might be able so to arrange your dealings with him as to have the paiment made convenient to you. I have informed him that your rent for 1807. is but 160. D. I tender you my best wishes.
