John Robertson wrote from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to Julian Niemcewicz in Elizabethtown, New Jersey. Received Julian’s favor of the 1st Instant and would have answered it in course but Mr. Binney promised to furnish Robertson with a note of the expenses of papering and painting, which delayed his letter to Julian. Included a copy of the account as furnished by Mr. Binney, which was exclusive to papering, and would cost about £15 more. Could not inform Julian of the expense of the Carpenter’s bill as the roof could not be examined at present. Mr. Binney did not agree to have the sink filled up and from what Robertson learned it would have to be cleaned out and that was an expense that would occur every two or three years. Did not receive the ground rent from Robert Morris even though Robertson called upon him frequently.

People mentioned: Horace Binney and Robert Morris.
