TranscriptDear Matty New York 3 July 1787
There was a Capt Scott here in July
1775 employed by W C who recd [received?] from Jacob
Albright a [hhds?] [time?] to sell & pay the [proudy?]
to Mr Norris. I think he is brother to Sally
Scott from Bangor, will you inquire
about it as he has never paid the money
I am in hope of receiving some money
on the two Bonds between this & the next
pacquet, if not I shall endeavour to remit
you by my bill or on London on as much
as will with whats in Wm [William?] Norris's hands
pay of [off?] Mrs Clark, I shall get him to assist
you in negotiating the order I may give.
Youl [you will?] observe I calculate [account?] about this
time of œ100 to him. The 29th past I recd. [received?]
your wellcome [welcome?] favor 23 April & am pleased
to find Mr Sadler has represented the affairs
here as they realy [really?] are & hope to be able to
get them settled soon after his return
I am glad to hear of his [joining?] in Matrimony
I never hesitate meeting Mr Waddell upon
the affairs of the late House, but it is not
proper for me to have any further intimacy
his Father left but œ500 & he recd [received?] œ200 of it
from Cunningham in the year 1761, you
know my Sentiments of the later
what you mention to be sent in [Line?] it
will enable him to pay his part of the
Company Debts, no doubt you will show
Mr Isaac & Mr Campbell the books when
you know what they say inspecting their
affairs. I was in hopes of hearing from
the farmer. I shoud [should?] think from
the indulgence you give the Tenants they
shoud [should?] be more punctual by [every?]
information I can get they rent their farms
on Moderate terms. I am sorry for the Death of
poor Paterson [Patterson?] The parties you
mention took the last method of setling
[settling?] their difference, did McCulloch
marry one of James Browns Sisters, he
was here During the war & an intimate friend
of mine. I was always at a loss to know
how the former came by so great a fortune.
I find the April pacquet arrived in 25 days
will you get one of the Tenants to collect
a bushell of [WhinSird?] Mr Apthorpe
wants it sown round his fences, with
Compl [compliments?] to all friends & Love to our Sisters
I am Dr [dear?] Matty Your ever [afft?] [affectionate?]
Br [brother?]
