My Dear Wm. John
I enclose the Second of Exchange on
Robert Lockhart & Dempster Liverpool for Four Hundred
and four pounds seventeen shillings and five pence
Sterling. having forwarded the first on the 23rd Inst.
I have not yet heard of the amount of the shipment made
to Brown Shipley & Co. I see prices are again on the
decline in Liverpool. I hope for an improvement before mine
is put on the market. it continues to rain daily and
great apprehensions are entertained that it will be very
injurious on the Cotton. the weather has no appearance
of clearing off. so far our City continues very healthy.
I have doubts whether it will continuous so during the next
two months. the first Bale of Cotton was received here
yesterday. this makes the fourth received at different
parts in the State. it will be unusually late coming to
market this season. I am yet undecided whether I shall visit the

North this summer. I cannot well leave home. and the season
is too far advanced. should I do so I shall write you
from New York. I have just seen a gentleman from Clarkesville
who report that our old friend Mr & Mrs Campbell in good
health. Mrs Nichols is spending a few days at my house.
and looks well and quite active for one of her years.
her residence is about a mile from South Boundary Street
on the Geo [Georgia?] Rail Road. hoping you will write
at your earliest convenience I remain
Yours Very Truly
