Dear sir,

I have duly received your letter of the 14th instant.

The enclosed to Mr John Lewis, left open for your persual will shew what I require for myself, and am willing to do for others. Do you & he therefore, after full enquiry into facts, point out what this ought to be - and no delay shall be experienced from me.

The two hundreds pounds for which you endorsed an order upon a Merchant of this place, has been duly paid. The remainder of the money due me for the purchase of the lots (amounting to about two hundred pounds more) I give, as I desired Mr. Howell Lewis to inform you to my niece Mrs. Carter. And by these presents I confirm the gift. Give my love to her.

With great esteem & regard
I am - Dear Sir
Your Obedient Servt
G. Washington
