The Lead Agents have been with me all this Morning & I shall proceed with them Tomorrow to the Lead Pay.

This very unpleasant Matter respecting the Sale of the 3 percent Stock vexes me much, but I have not been the Occasion of it; I have been engaged in this Business solely from nine o’Clock this Morning till ten at Night w[hi]ch has fatigued me very much.
