[ New York] Aug. 21 1827.
I wrote a letter this morning by Mrs. Tripler enclosing you twenty five dollars. I do not learn by your last whether you received a letter written by me about a week ago in answer to your last letter but one. In that I mentioned that I should soon send you some money and begged you not to stay any longer in a situation that was not pleasant to you, but either to come to New York or find another place in that neighbourhood, just as might be most agreeable to you. At present I hope you will be able to find a place in your neighbourhood because I believe there is some prospect of my coming up this week to pass a week or fortnight with you. Young Coleman has returned, and thinks himself able to attend to the paper a little while. But Mignet is not yet done though I am finishing it as fast as I can. Whatever change you may make let me know it immediately.--
