Sir, I duly recd. your former letter respecting certain enquiries to be made of Mr Isaac Hunter relating Mr Scotts claim on the Trustee under the will of Mr Hunters late Father & I have to apologise to you for not attending to it before I did, but we had for so long been kept busy by the preparations for the late contested election that it & some other things got out of mind that ought to have been attended to. I had however before the date of your letter of the 9th inst: sent your former Lre. by Mr Hunters wife to him desiring he might try to recollect what he cod. as to the above affair and I wod. wait on him on my return home having to be from home for a week or so and on my coming to the office last Monday recd. your last letter in a Frank dated the 11th inst: which had come in my absence. Yesterday being our Market Day I cod. not find time to go to Mr Hunter who lives a little out of this town but today after post time I went to him but cod. not get much information from him as to the accot. he had shewed me on the former occasion when I saw him. His memory seems affected from the Effects of Palsy. He seems, from what I cod. gather, to have made out the accot. from Rects. letters and other documents to which he had some time had access, from this you will see that little more can be made out than what I have already communicated except by calling the Trustee under the Will to account.
