Seth Hunt to Moses Austin, 07-20-1808
Summary: Business in New Orleans.
It has not been in my power to procure for you the articles that you requested—they could have been obtained had I been authorised to have drawn on Chs. Carr at six months—but nothing could be done, to pay in N Orleans at nine months—the shortest time at which you authorised me to engage for you, I regret all this, as you may in consequence be much disappointed.—
I have nothing to add to my former observations—but to request that you will keep me regularly and fully informed on all the subjects in which I am interested in Louisiana—Pray what has become of Smiths suit against me?
Compliments to all our friends—and accept for yourself the renewed assurance of my high Esteem and personal attachment—
