Joseph L. Tillinghast Esq

                        Dear Sir,

                                     Your favor of 22 last with its enclosures came duly to hand, I have attended to its contents. I have this day called upon Mr. Currier agent for the Privateer Wasp. I exhibited Joseph Emerick's power of attorney & upon which, Mr. Currier produced a similar one that he had given to his wife, upon the back of which were her three receipts given in May & July, the last of which was in full -- There remains therefore nothing for me to do but to return the power with your receipt, which you will find here enclosed & am respectfully

Your Obedient Servant,
