do write me the amount of the charge for my comb – I will send it – up – & if you please (tis a request which I most earnestly desire you to perform as quickly as possible) to obtain my albums to send them to E. Mason would do it if you would

give them to him – when I last heard from the albums they were in T Delongs possession perhaps. Eugenia Fairfax might assist you in getting them – I would like to get them before I go out of the country – be sure to write to me very soon & often –
