In part, "…my Affair with Ysaham is rather desperate; were he put into Goal, I do no believe he has a friend that would take him out as they have suffered by him already….I am sorry to hear that some Rascals have been destroying the Timber on some of my Lotts in Saratoga. Pray is there no way of coming at these Fellows or of preventing it…for the Soil is good for little afterwards…." Fine condition. Address has postal markings.
Estimated Value $600 - 800.
