Whatever this sum shall fall short of the purchase and incidental expences will be immediately remitted to you and I should be glad to [] all three of them here as soon as convenient.

I pray you to accept my thanks for the readiness with which you have complied with my request and the [] of the esteem & regard Dear Sir Your obedt []
