promised to try and get me the amount which is due me by the
Monday the 22d August still raining- went up to Mr Lee's to
see Mrs Lacomb, found her one of those little vivacious French
women, who amidst all their troubles show their nationality by a
light and gay air so peculiar to that nation-, I hope she may
meet with full success in getting her property, which I belive

as if it would Clear up- god grant it may-

anticipated- She is right, the Labourer is worthy of his hire, but
she does not get that- there was a Political meeting at James
Wallings's to day all the Candidates in attendance, including Mr
Nelson and Ben Vansickle candidates for County surveyor-
