Dear Thomas
I rec'd your letter
of the 15th of Oct and observe
its contents, I am no little
astonished at Mr Peebles demand
as I settled everything with him
of debt which I had incurred
& which would be incurred
after I was gone in presence
of my brother Wm [William?] as I told
him to do before. 2nd Mr
Wakefield purchase Money
and even paid him for stamps
that he was to have concealed
and paid over to whoever I would
authorise to receive it. [mor?] these
circumstances, I will not allow
Mr Peebles to be paid any
money on my acct [account?], and [Saml?]
though can't stop my money
without my authority as he
must know stoppage is
no payment which as an
attorney he must know, in
fact I will not allow it.
having paid Peebles all I had
to pay him before I left the
country, you will please apply
to Mr Knox for the amt [amount?] if
my dividend and remit[?] it
to me, if you please without
delay. I am sorry to give you
so much trouble, what [over?] a small
payment, and I may say what
a [Bother?] S. Knox has made
a good job it for himself, if he
will not pay it you must sue
him, I again say pardon my troubling
you so much, but you are the
only friend I would trust to do
my business & I am still in an
unsettled way to expansion to
live here and support a family
in fact I am poor but able
to do my turn. I have come
through a sea of trouble since I
came to this country, still the
Lord has kept my head above
the waters. Sarah & I is [are?] glad to
hear of her mother living well and
join in love to her when you see
her and let her know we never enjoyed] George &
Seton is [are?] in Troy at present & Wm
[William?] at a trade in this town, so all we
have at home with us is the two
youngest Richd [Richard?] & Sarah who are
both well Expecting soon to hear from
you I remain your sincere friend
