I send my Boy Israel down for you
to examine him, I have examined him, and find
he has got the Pox, will you give him
what medicine that is necessary- and write
the directions very plain that it may
be understood by any person - as I
cannot be at home to attend to him
myself.. and my overseer will
have to do it --. Please write
very particularly, and let him
be cured as soon as possible
for he is my best hand. to .the
Plow and I am about to seed
Wheat, and am now loosing
by his improvidence

I am Sir
Yr Most Obt Sevt
