Dear Sir
My last respects to you dated the 12th Inst. the chief purport of which was to inform you of my illness, which prevented my silence and sending on my accounts agreeable to orders. I now do myself the honor of transmitting them to you for the months of September, October, Novr, and December which I flatter myself will meet with due acceptance.
I have the Honor to be Sir, With great respect y. Mt. Obt. & very H St. Samuel Shore
