New York, November 29th 1786


You stand charged in my books with the sum of sixty six dollars & two thirds. for goods received at York [undecipherable] in Virginia which it appears by the within certificate has not been accounted for. I am therefore to request that you will be pleased to pay this sum into my hands for the United States and am Sir [undecipherable]
