Above is copy of what I wrote you the 2nd
May, I only acted as an agent in the sale of the
vessel to Jesse Taylor, therefore not lyable [liable?], he still
refuses a Settlement, he is Settled in Maryland
I am much obliged to the Browns for [Marys?]
Attention to you I have not a line from the
people in Ireland yet. Mr Sadler is expected here
next month when a final end must be put
to their affairs as I am as anxious to have
them settled as you can wish so as to get
from home. I hope to be able to mention the
Period soon after his arrival. The Hope
arrived the 18th past, & the ladies are much
pleased with the Diaper & Sheeting, the Tongues
