To John Pendleton
Philada. Augst. 2. 1787.
Inclosed is the account on which my claim is founded for another quarters advance; for which I have drawn a bill on the Treasurer in favor of Messrs. Wests Merchts. of this City.1 I was so unlucky as to make out & dispose of the bill before I adverted to the surplus of £14. advanced for the last quarter by mistake of your Clerk.2 I could not therefore correct the error at this time. In my next account, it shall certainly be attended to. I am Sir with great respect Yr. Obdt. & hble servt.
