Summary: Edward Sharp to Moses Austin, November 11, 1813.

Camden Novemr 11th, 1813

Dear Sir

On the fifth Oct. last I enclosed to you via Nashville two post notes of one hundred dollars each which I hope you have received before this, I was very suddenly called from home and detained much longer than I expected or you shou'd have heard from me ere this—on my return I found two letters from you, one of which con- taining a Deed for Saml Fowler—desiring me to deliver the same and receive the bala say fifty Dollars, and as you mentioned nothing about the paymt of this money, I presume it is understood between all parties that Mrs Berry is to receive it as her proportion of the Mine Tract—I herein send you two post Notes of one hundred dollars each and have forwarded to the Revd Saml Whettelsey one hundred dollars agreeably to your instructions.

We are happy to hear that your daughter has changed her name, and wish she may live to enjoy many years of pleasure—Mrs Sharp joins me in love to your Wife—and believe me to remain with much esteem

Your friend

Edwd Sharp

Next week shall forward you $200—which will be all the money in my hands—Mr Acton wished me to inform you that he wants you and James Austin to send him a power of atty to authorize him to prosecute Schoolley for the Back rents for you—he thinks by harassing him, he can bring him to terms as to the land—You must use your own pleasure as to granting him his request—
