Should you remain a day in Baltimore I think you would find it to your advantage to purchase your Browns Blacked good there. I purchased my supply there about fifteen days ago at an advance of about 1/2 cent over Boston price. There is another endorsement. Should the Banks continue not to pay species, should make a difference of 4 or 5 percent probably in your favor when your notes mature.

Business is very dull here and no purchases from the west. I have only purchased about $1200\3000, yet the market will be much better in ten days hence. I heard is at present. Your brother & family are well.
Very Respectfully
Yours etc.
