Dear Sir

                        I received your letter respecting cer

tain clames  due for services rendered in the

Mormon difficulty.  but not in time to see

you in Fayette the clame  of James Williams

stands on the payroll unpaid which is $11.07

also Hughs Parsons unpaid    .     .    . 11.07

but the name of James L Jipson is not

to be found on the original payroll in

Capt Childs company .  I exspect to be

in the City of Jefferson about the last of the

month at which time I will pay off this

above clames  and any others that you may

have on hand.  the out standing clames

are often presented to me for payment and

cannot leave home untill about that time

least I should disappoint many persons

my respects to yourself and family

yours truly.
