Phila 25th 1st mo 1814
I recd thy favour of 28th ulto & 4th Inst have paid thy draft in favour of Thomas Rotch & Co for $500 to A Skinner who left this for N York on the 17th. I have forwarded to Wm R Dickinson of Steubenville a Post Note of the Penna Bank for fourteen hundred Dollars, and to James Adams of Pittsburg a Post Note for fifty Dollars on thy Acct agreeably to thy instructions, and shall make thee a further remittance in a few days. James has a great inclination to visit Kendal, but his present enegagements will not admit of doing it this Winter, he is still with us but expects to go to N York next month.
I feel great Interest in every thing relating to Kendal & our neighbourhood & altho Mayhew is very good in giving us a detail of recurrence when he writes yet it would be pleasant to hear oftener from you, & I hope thou wilt continue to favour us with thy Epistles from time to time, stating the progress & improvements of the settlement, the Accounts we get from time to time are not confined to ourselves, & will be an inducement for others to go & see for themselves, I expect Thos Hathaway will go out when A Skinner returns & view the Country
