Number of Pages: 
September 7, 1800

William Bingham writes to Mr. M. M. Hays regarding a General Jackson and his "draft upon me in your favor for $1740." Bingham has already paid General Jackson "his draft of 1000 dollars," which "I have with very great inconvenience to myself, found the means of paying." Bingham also notes his inability to accommodate an additional sum for the General "as my disbursements on account of my Maine Lands, have absorbed such an immense proportion of my resources." Transcript included.
