Fair Haven 7th Feby 1842—
Rev Joseph Smith
D. Sir— I was a day or two since at New  Egypt and Mr Thos. W Ivins told me that he and Esqr. Cowperthwaite  were ready at any time to deed the Cooks Mills property and  the Pine timber land to me at the price agreed upon but  that as yet he had received no instructions from Mr   authorising them to do so— Possibly since arriving in has been so much en gaged as to have forgotten it— If convenient will  you sir oblige me by seeing him and remind him of  the importance that a deed will be to me now so that  I can avail myself of the Spring for selling the property
I see by the public prints that you  are progressing in population wealth and improvements  beyond any precident and this state of things aside  from any pecuniary consideration can give <no> person  greater pleasure than myself
The Banks will nearly  all break— Accept my best wishes Yours truly [p. [1]]
