Mount Vernon 18th July—96
Let me request the favor of you to pay (out of the money I left in your hands) one hundred and thirty dollars to Mr Thos McEwen, agreeably to the direction contained in the enclosed letter from Colo. Wadsworth to me; and take his receipt for the same on the back of the letter.
Colo. Wadsworth was obliging enough to offer me a Naraganset of his own breeding—which he thought would be fit for use in two or three years—this I accepted, provided I was not in the prosecution of a journey to the Land of Spirits (before that time) in which he might be of no service to me. With very great esteem and regard—I am—Dear Sir Yours —always
