I have recd. yours of the 4th. inst. I hope your Guest will very soon set out, if he sd. not already have done so. On the subject of yr. charges agst. him, I must refer to my last, adding only that speedy attention will be given not only to any necessary advance for his journey, but to what may become due for his ordinary expences, during his detention if that sd. happen. The bill for the past must bear the delay heretofore intimated.
With my acknts. for the friendly tenor of your communications; I tender you my respects & good wish<es>
