Washington Jan. 8. 08.
The copy of Shakespear you were so kind as to send me came safe to hand, and I avail myself of the first occasion of making a remittance to Philada to include the sum of 11. D. for you. Messrs. Jones & Howell, ironmongers of Philada will pay you that sum from funds remitted them this day, if you will have the goodness to have it called for. I present you my salutations.
