My Dear Bagby,
That fellow Kelly has lied to you out and out. There is not one word
of truth in his statements. I wish you would rent the the house to some good
man at $15 or 20 per month, and by the month. If you can’t rent it, I wish
you to get some good man to stay in it if you please. Let Jeff Wright
have it. I wish you would please to see Floyd and see for what I owe
him, and let me know the amount that Mr. Scott owes him. Do my dear
friend let me know these things. I send the shoes back to my friend
Ballor[?]. When you send me my thing be pleased to send it by safe hands,
and pray, write to me by mail, what you have sent.
