Dear Sir,

Your letter of May 16 came
to hand in my absence, I would be glad to accommo-
date you with the articles you need, but it is not in
my power at present, we are puting up a large quantity of
Butter & Lard & some Bacon which we intend to send
to the Lake country in the fall, &may be able at that
time to supply you with any quantity of provision.

As to money it is utterly out of the question at present.
I intend however at no distant day to comply & fulfil with
& fulfil my contract, and so soon as our city shall begin
to go ahead I intend to erect buildings on my lots.

With much respect

Your friend & c

David Clark
