[January 27, 1836, to F. Joseph Carbery in St. Inigoes]
I am surprised and very sorry to see in yr letter 15th inst that yr R. did not keep any minute, or copy, of a transaction of so much moment, for the farm you administer, as was the necessary sale which took place last September; being not a sale of mere produce but of a true & real capital. To ask now a copy of it from the purchaser, as you suggest, would be an acknowledgement of too much negligence on our part, about so important a contract, and I cannot do it with a sense of propriety for ourselves.
Sent the correction for the Ordo.
