I send you a Bill of costs in the Collins suit. After the amt is settled, deduct the Ballance of our Private account (<Bet &c>) The a/c of fees due. <Clark> & I have written to King on the Subject of his a/c but I have not yet Received his draft. If he has not drawn pay him and if there is a Ballance deposit it in the Bank to my a/c So much for Business Now my Dear Sir Permit me to make to you my most sincere thanks for your
unsolicited gratuitous interference in my welfare. My Pride ^vanity^ cannot on this occasion as it might do on others induce me to ^with^draw from you a tittle of the merit which is due for so honorable a sacrifice of your Political feelings to the Benevolence of your heart. The Result whatever it may be cannot lighten or decrease the gratitude I feel.
