Dear Rev. Father,
When I last had the pleasure of seeing you here, I remember you asked me whether the late Abp. left any record of a promised emancipation of the negroes on Bohemia farm. The above is litterally copied from a book in his own hand writing, which lately fell into my hands. I take the liberty likewise to send you my acct. agst. you as it stands in my Books for the purpose of receiving a pecuniary remittance from you, assuring you at the same time that I am very much pushed for money, having some time ago advanced to Fr. Grassi $425 to enable my Brother to leave N. york. I must observe that some arrangement ought to be made about Ordo’s & holy oils. You will perceive that you owe me for the h. oils purchased last year. Il faut de l’argent Il faut beaucoup d’argent.
Affectionately yours
E. F
