May 17 1827.Dear sir,

I have in compliance with your request searched the [unclear: Sray [Stray] ] Books.

I discover that "on the 21 Feb. was taken up by William L. Ross on the waters of Rutherford's Creek near the mills of John B. Bond , a bay horse supposed to be 12 years old, about 151/2 hands high, a small star in his forehead, marked considerably with gear, no brands perceivable, appraised to $45" —

Though the age does not agree, the above may be your horse. I will endeavor to learn precisely where those mills are and give you information.

T. H. Cahall
Hon: [Honorable] John Overton
[added: P.S. Mr Foster has this moment [added: told me] that it if about 14 miles to Bond's.]
