Sir:

From my knowledge of depositions I am
perfectly satisfyed Mr. Harris's is so full and
compleat that you have nothing to fear from
George Anderson &c for these reasons and when
you consider the hardships and fatigue, together with
the extreme illness I suffered I am persuaded from
your Character you will make me some satisfaction.

you may urge I engaged for 40 dollars with
my Eyes Open; this I acknowledge, but had not
an idea of the Expence in Travelling on the Stage
Road neither thought I of the Sickness I suffered.
If I had made any thing or even saved myself
i should not speak in this strain.

I am sir yr. mo Obedt. Servt.
John P Thomas
