Washington Jan. 12. 08.
I recieved last night information that 2. tons of nail rod were shipped from Philadelphia for me. they will probably be at Richmond by the last of this month. after writing my letter to you of yesterday I recieved your’s of the 8th. mr Minor is not obliged to recieve nails as his contract was for money. you had not mentioned to me the debt of 30. D. to John Carr for 6. barrels of corn. I have added both to the list of paiments to be made. I gave in a former letter a statement of the debts you had communicated to me, & of the remittances for their discharge. I state them again below with such others as you have since notified. about 2. remittances more of 200.D. each will discharge them. you will decide which to pay off first according to their pressure. I think mr Minor should be paid out of my next remittance. I present you my best wishes.
