Dudley sends Chase two copied letters. In the first, he summarizes to Chase the reply he received from Richard Jeffries regarding the Moore lands in Mason County, Virginia, noting several inconsistencies in Jeffries's response. He tells Chase that he should decide for himself whether or not to redeem the lands once he has received a response from the auditor, verifying Jeffries's claims. The second letter is a copy of the response letter Dudley received from Jeffries.
