Description
Has received his letter by Mr. Mitchell who will receive every assistance in securing Carter's furniture in the best manner; is grateful for the offer to leave some for his own use, but will reserve only such pieces as Carter may need in case times should alter, or if some gentleman might take charge of the house if Digges is obliged to leave it, which his wife's state of health may make necessary; thanks Carter for giving him the use of his house.
