To Michael G. Dale 
Dear Sir Nov. 8. 1859
Yours of the 4th. is just received. My expectation is to be at the Mount-Vernon Supreme Court, reaching there the 21st. of the month. Can then attend to your case if it be not disposed of before. I am just leaving home to be absent several days; so that it may not be convenient for me to get the copy of the Articles of Association. I think Jo. Gillespie has such copy. Yours truly
