Philadelphia, June 14, 1826.
The enclosed is your account for the Franklin Gazette. Mr. Todd paid up to May 1823. You will perceive that one year, up to next May, is charged in advance, in order to make the sum easy of transmission by mail, and because the charge is one dollar less than if it were paid at the end of the year. With earnest prayers for a continued life of happiness and tranquility for years yet to come, I have the honour to be, With profound respect & veneration, Your most obt. servant,
RC (DLC). Docketed by JM.
