Hartford Co. feb 20, 1813
An action has been instituted in the County of Luzerne & State of Pennsylvania by Thomas Casady against David W. Taylor grounded on an alleged receipt of money by Taylor for the benefit of Casady said money alleged to have been received at Hartford Ct of Mr. Thomas Roach.

Wheeler Esq Taylor's attorney resident in Tunck hannot in Pennsylvania, who has written to me on he subject. Estract from Mr Wheelers letter:

About that period he saw an advertisement in one of the public prints of your City
