Dear sir

Capt Heron1 proposes to Settle with you
Agreeable to the inclosed State, as I am unacquainted with the price of
wheat at the Head of Elk and with the Custom respecting the allowance
for deficiency of Weight, have wrote to Colo Hollingsworth for
information and Shall do nothing till I hear from him. Mr. Heron
insists that the price to be Allowed for the wheat was to be the market
price at the time of delivery, And that the ballance of the money was
not to be paid till Six or Seven weeks after the delivery of the last
parcel but if you will take an order on Mr Rutland you Shall have one
immediately on the full quantity of wheat being delivered. I wish to
have your further Instructions by the next Post. Am obliged to the
intendant for the attention to the Delegates. Since he has put our
Supplys into the hands of Colo. Hollingsworth we have received our
Allowances pretty regularly & whenever I may have Occasion to Call
for the four hundred pounds of mine which your Excellency have been
obliged to make use and to which you were extreamly welcome, I hope you
will be put to no inconveniency in paying it. It is time to attend
Congress and therefore Conclude by assureing you that I am upon all
Occasions,

your Excellencys most humble sevt,

John Hanson
