New York Nov 12th 1787

Dear Sir

On Saturday last I received a letter for you from Neufville informing that he has received about 28.000 dollars of the money left in the hands of Mr Russell. Mr Russell wrote to Mr Neufville but did not date his letters it is supposed he is somewhere in Geogia but what particular part Mr Neufville is not able to learn the letter I laid before the Board of Treasury as son as they have done with them I will have them copied and transmit them to you - In my former letters I forgot to mention that Mr Flint has resigned, he has left one large chest of papers with us - Major Hashell is appointed in his room, no complaint yet appointed.

I am Sir Yo
