Caulfeild to Clark.3
Acknowledges receipt of letter of July 12: each species answers to invoice. Did not expect them so soon: encloses bills dated Sept. 1, so that agent may have less excuse for deferring payment. As to not sending rest of provision's now, Caulfeild thinks his reasons good and leaves the affair in his (Clark's) management.
Favored with M’'s of Nov. 4, by Jno. Harrison, with enclosure from "my oId acquaintance and Very good ffriend Majr Rapin whose health, happiness and good fortune, in all respects I heartily congratulate." Sends letter for Rapin to be forwarded when opportunity offers.
(initialed.) T : C :
1. Gen. Carpenter, married to Caulfeild's aunt. 2. No direction; addresses conjectural: the "Pernitious Proceedings" probably the agents' rascality. 3. Addressee conjectured: no direction. 4. Direction reads "To Maj." Mascarene.
