I have recd your favor of the 16th. A man with a Cart & a Cow, and two boys to assist in bringing the Calves will be on the road to day [saturday], and arrive on Monday.
Be so good as to send by the last
I am to be furnished by contract with Pork & other Articles to be delivered & paid for on the 1st. of December. The cost will be about six hundred dollars for which I have relied on receipts which I am now afraid may fail. I must ask whether with your aid that sum can be obtained from one of the Banks; on a loan for a few months. With friendly respects
