He was thinking of purchasing 100 acres in Georgia from Mr. Seagrove, but delayed his visit to November due to the weather. He was also sending a barrel of cider from Mrs. Livingston (possibly Margaret Livingston) ad enclosed a letter from her. The second page seems to be her letter where she wrote about the influx of people to town, availability of houses, and politics.
