Cresents [sic] Harbor Apr 23 1854
Mr. Shaw Sir
It is with the greatest difficulty to understand you in what you mean, you rote [sic]
to me that you wanted me to build you a house on your claim to pay that I owed you, and
I answered your [sic] to that effect but before [sic] I received any answer to that you gave
the note to Mr. Allen for collection. you never told me where your claim was so that I
could make any calculation about it, you had ought to answer [sic] my letter before this,
so that I could make some calculations about what to do.

NB I sent Mr. Sargent's note up for collection by Mr. Anderson to get the interest and
pricipel [sic] so as to pay you the fifty dollars. if you see him you can get it from him and
also you will find an order on him for twenty dollars more that he is a owing me and the
interest of Mr. Sargent's note, for I am anxious to pay you for you want it and I want it
paid nothing more at present,
Your most humble servant,
William Wallace
I wish you would send me a late paper or two if you please.

[Page 2]

Colonel Anderson Sir please pay to B.F. Shaw twenty dollars for building of a house on
your claim and also the interest of Mr. Sargent's note and receit [sic] the same for me
from both men.

Colonel Anderson Sir Mr. Miller does not intend paying me that sum that you requested
him to pay to me so if you will pay the same to Mr. Shaw it will do me as well.
Yours and so fourth,
William Wallace
