Dear Brother Philadelphia 6 mo 9, 1814
Having received thy Sundry Letters, under date of 4 mo 4, & 18, with thy Accounts stated with Maria Imlay & the Receipts to be signed by her And under the last date, thy reconveyance of her Trust Estate which had been vested in hee I had the opportunity, by Richards call on me, about two weeks ago to inform him,that I had received the Accounts & Receipts to be signed by Maria & that I shortly expected thy Deed of Reconveyance which had been delayed, by thy missing the judge at Boston when thou went thither to have it legally acknowledged.
In consequence of this information, Richard & Maria came here this morning & I showed them thy Accounts, the Receipts and thy Reconveyance of her Trust Estate, which after examination, appeared to her to be all correct & satisfactory except the Receipt dated 1 of 8 mo 25 1812 for $100, which Maria alledged she had not recieved, I observed to her the nature of thy Instructions to me, on the occasion & read to her, that part only which positively directed me , not to deliver the Deed of Conveyance, till after all those Receipts were signed, that she might take the Accounts home & examine them & leave the Deed with me, as I could no nothing but in conformity to thy Orders. after which she chose rather to sign all the Receipts exactly as by thee furnished, when I delivered the Conveyance to her, so that I hope all is satisfactorily done & will prove to be so in the End. Inclosed are the said Receipts all signed by Maria Imlay, I told her that if after she got home, she found anything to need correction she had better write thee herself thereon.
Refering from Sundry particulars, to what our Neice M Rotch may add on this sheet, & as she is with us, upwards of a week, since she came with her father & Mother, with the joint Love of my wife, Daughter & Son, to thee & Sister, including myself, Thy affectionate Brother, Samuel R Fisher
