Dr Sir,
   I send by Mr Strathon a claim of ours for $3800, made under Mr. Peters administration which you will please order Peters or some one else to pay. It has been standing along time & I greatly desire to get it settled. Mr Strathon has a claim of his own which ought to be paid he is a gentleman and has worked for the money.
Your friend
Sam Tate Prest
