    My ffriend


    If this finds you yet in harbour I would have you make the best of your way up as soon as possible your affairs will let you I have something more to say to you than at present I can write the bearer will tell you the end of our Indian Warr and Ganet can tell you in part what I have to say to you so referr you in some measure to him

    I really think these three men [I suspect them to be Edward Moseley, Maurice Moore, and Jeremiah Vail of “The Family”] are heartily sorry at their difference with you and will be very willing to ask your pardon if I may advise be ffriends again, its better than falling out among your selves

    I expect the Governor this night or tomorrow who I believe would be likewise glad to see you before you goe, I have not time to add save my hearty respects to you and am your real ffreind

    And Servant
