Rev. Jos. Smith
Dear Sir— I was gratified in the perusal yesterday of  the proceedings of your Conference relative to the “ published in the Times and Seasons— Should it be convenient for  the editor to send me pr. mail six or eight copies of that paper con taining the article refered to I should be greatly obliged to him—
Some time since I wrote you stating  that Mr had settled the twenty five hundred dollar Note  together with the interest upon it— He gave me two Notes for 721  dollars each against Riley Allen and a piece of Land for 1200 dolls. — Mr Allen has since died and the land I have sold for One  thousand dollars so that you will perceive I shall not realise near  the face of my Note but is of course no way to blame  for that as he could not have foreseen the death of Mr Allen—
I informed you in the same letter  that Mr [Smith] Tuttle and myself had offered to receive from  the Cooks Mills Tavern Stand and One hundred and thirty seven  acres p[r]ime lands for the sum of Three Thousand dollars towards an  interest— This he assented to provided it should be thought  best after a consultation between himself and the heads of the Church — I doubt not it will be approved
left about 10 days since for  your
