Lemuel Kingsbury to MVB, 24 April 1815
24 April 1815
I rec'd a visit from a Gentleman who demanded of me money in behalf of this State which is their due and my duty to pay, by reason of wrong information I have neglected paying the Intrest supposing that the Law did not req^u^ire payments on Interes[t] untill 1817 but my misunderstanding does not pay my debt. I became a settler on <s'd> Lots Viz No—11—13—117 on the 30 of last May. Has not the Legislature directed suits brought against actual settlers to be discontinued? I have Receits for intrest amounting to about $100. If the suit must go on can ^I^ by paying intrest and cost have the privilege of paying as other settlers have or must the whole be paid immediately, if Sir you will be so kind as to drop a line on the Business directed to Sangerfield you would much Oblige a stranger
& Obdt. Servt.
