Dr. Sr.:

I Recd. your Letter of Mr. Carpenter. I Returned the attachment & Inventorey to Courts and am Sorrey to acquaint you that the Court would not allow it to be Lawfull to order a Sale as the Estate attachd was Confiscated by act of Assembly.

I was glad that it was in my power to Serve you as much as I could wish to do and I Return you my Sincear thanks for your polite manner in Returning me thanks for what Services I have done to you. I think it was my duty and I have done it wt. pleasure when I knew it was Serving a gentleman high in my Esteem. I am told that you may have the attachment Layd. yet only it must be done by the Assembly; but it is needless for me to say a word to the wise. I Sincearly wish you a happy Sight of your family at Roan Oke and I Remain Dr. Sr.,

Your most affectionate Huml. & obedt. Servt.
