This is my first day at this place, & on reaching here I found your letter in relation to your business with Douglass. I met him afterwards, but disliking to dunn him at the first meeting with him, I let it pass, for the time. I will attend to it shortly however & write you.
You intimate there is some danger of my neglecting the business; but if you will get me as good a fee as you got for Jo. Gillespie  in the case he tells of, I'll never desert you. Yours truly
