S[eth] Capron to MVB, 18 October 1815


I this moment recd. Notice from the Sherriff of a Suit in the Supreme Court, which I presume has originated in my omiting to pay up the Interest on my Loan. I am mortified at the circumstance, which has originated in the extent of my manuftg business, in the extreme high price of Cotton for the last two years, & the effect of Peace on the Sales.

The intention of the Loan was to aid the manuftg. interests of this State. Their extent & perfection in this county, honorably display the wisdom of the measure. It would ^be^ extremely distress me to pay up the Bond at this time & greatly embarrass my extensive & progressive manuftg concerns.

Will the Attorney Genl. have the goodness to write me, by return mail, whether if I pay up the Interest & Cost, the suit can drop, which Shall be immediately done on receipt of your Letter.

I am Sir very


Your Obedt Serv.

S. Capron
