My intentions and ful particulars I {received?} tow letters and Bill of exchange for thirty tow pounds stirling but I cant get it cashed till I {receive?} the second bill of exchange regarding my busness. I am getting along very well considering my small capital. A few days ago I was obliged to purchase a horse and wagon that cost over three hundred dollars. I could not get along without it. Henry, if you feel inclined to let me have this money for three months, it will help me along considerable. I have not yet got me feet properly. Please rite me early and state your intentions. I feel sorry regarding the money laying in the hands of others if you cant properly spare it out of your busness just rite me to that efect and I will return this first bill without delay.

My kind respects to Mrs Gibb, Brother Sharp, {sisters and I Gibb?}. Excuse this I ought to paid respects to the old man first but it is a {mystake?} which I hope will be looked over. I will rite him before this month expires if I {lien? I beg all _____excuse for my negelance.
