dear Sir

 

At the invitation of Genl. Jackson I am about to accompany him to N. Orleans I am therefore under the necessity of requesting yiu to forward Jnotn Mclean immediately, 150 dollars, in order to return that sum which he will have advanced to me. The order being positive must be provided for out of my property in the best manner you can. You have I hope recd. my letter advising you of this probability and giving you full power.

Yrs in great haste

 

H Lee
