Knoxville Tennessee Jan. [January] 5th 1839
Brother Charles,

I could not procure any Clover seed, there being none in this place. The merchants think a sufficient quantity can be purchased before time for sowing them. Horses are dull sale hire [here], I can hear of no one wanting to buy

I will send in this your money and a ten dollar bill to Henry, which he sent by me to Col, [Colonel] R, White . I did not see him. I could not get John M Duffie 's business done in time to send by Ham ; if he enquires concerning it tell him when I have gotten the cetificate [certificate] I will envelop the writeings [writings] and send them by mail.

James M. [Monroe] Welcker
