Dear Sir,

As requested in yours of the 14th. I shall exercise the best judgment in my power in the sale of your Flour now on hand as well as that to be delivered, and when sold advise you. The quantity now on hand is One hundred & fifty one barrels Superfine; the four loads first brought down (56 barrels) having been sold from the Waggons when delivered. The balance according to my books is at present 5 89/100 Dollars in my favour. There has been a dividend declared on your Turnpike Stock payable on the 15th instant of $87 86/100 and there is due the Bank for Discounts upon your note $104 46/100. An order from you directed to the Trear. of the Turnpike Company will be necessary to enable me to draw it, if it is your will for me to do so. I am Very respectfully
