Pittsburgh 1st Jany [January] 1808

I received yours of the 23rd of November requesting me to recollect particularly the conversation that passed between Mr. Hunt and me about your Cotton Bailing of which I have the most perfect recollection on the 8th day after I left your place I called on Mr Hunt in Lexington & delivered him your Letter which he red [read] and then told me he could furnish you with what you wanted in case you would pay the money I told him I should not promise, that as I was not [added: so] [unclear: directed ] but that he might write to you by the first mail on subject which he said he would do he asked me if I thought you were good for the mony [money] I told him I had no doubt of that, he said if you would agree to pay the money in Lexington that he could have some of the Bailing ready in a short time, so that no positive agreement took place between Mr Hunt and me further than what I have stated the Memorandom [Memorandum] you gave me — I cannot find at present, but if I shoud [should] find it I will send you a Copy of it, what I have stated I am ready to make oath of at any time. I wish you to write me if Mr Coleman pays our money when it is [unclear: due ] if you have an opportunity you will be so good as to send it, we are your sincere Friends.
