About 20 dollars for each of the boys will be necessary to give Mr P. to bear their expenses (perhaps a little more) for which will acct. to Mrs Chase. Mrs Twells will make the advances for the Boy’s [?] year’s expense to me when I return thro’ Phil’a on my way to Ohio.

Mr Potter is directed to go to Wheeling thro’ Brownsville; Tell Mrs Twells that Mr Gen. Hogg may send his boys with hers if she write him on the subject.

Pray give the young man all the facilities you can & oblige your faithful Friend & Brother
