Dear Sir

	I wrote you the 5th instant on a very disagreeable Subject to which refer you.  A Statute of Bankruptcy is sent for by Hunter against William Chapman & Brother.  I have consulted with Mr Wilson on the Business & every proper Step will be taken on the occasion of which I shall advise you.  The middle or End of July I should imagine will be as soon as it will be necessary for you to come into this Country.  Your Lead Stewards will be with me next Week for Subsistence after which you shall hear from me & am etc      JEB
