My dear Sir

            I must request you to excuse my long delay in replying to your two letters. It has been my intention to give you all the information I have, on the subject, you refer to. I have had to consult, other members of the family & I am now waiting for some answers but I will write out correctly, & send to you, such as I am sure of before very long.

            I have a great deal of business to attend to, & becoming infirm from all

very truly yours

M.D. Gouverneur1
