Friend John

I returned on Saturday night from the Pawnee chase and found your several letters awaiting my return.

Nothing is being done with Land Warrants to speak of, but I will immediately make out a statement and forward you all proceeds of sales.

Shall go down the River again in a few days. Warrants sell @ 93-95 now and few in town. No persons here entering land.

All well, whipt the Indians, traveled 400 miles and had a hard time.
