Description

Paper is in good condition, but the letter has been torn in half. They seem to have been used as bands to bind other papers together, as one is marked on its reverse "Old Rects" and the other "Recent Rects". Both bear folds and scuffs that indicate having been wrapped around a pile of other papers. Originally a single sheet folded at the middle, with a small impression at the upper left corner of the first page. Very faint, it appears to have been a silhouette in an octogon. Pages listed in the order they would be in were the paper still intact.

Dear Madam
I went to the Superior Court clerk's Office to get
copies of the two papers which you sent your servant to
me for, but the clerk was absent, I leave town in the
morning for a few days, and when I return I will
have copies made out and sent to you as you request.
Respectfully Yours
Ro. Anderson
