F.H. Short Esqr.

Dear Sir,

Please find enclosed cash $86.66 and Morgages & 2 notes which were not needed as this is full pay for Lots No. 21 & 22 for a church less 8.33 to my ser and comes of 5.00.

I would like a duplicate of your Lands here for sale as it verry inconvenient to always go to Mr. Hamler to get prices & subscriptions & c. as he seems inclined to keep every thing in his own hands. Mr. Beckett said I could sell Lands as well as lots.

Respectfully
F.H. Short Esqr.           L.S. Holmes
