Dear friend, a ***** experience shows these figures: 15 $

by Pistal Order N.Y.: 105 shilling 90g--by Am.Sept.Ca,

[cadily] here at Bank: 105.83g--by Jel., calling A Dark:

104.701--notes sold here at Bank would bring 105.99.

Thus notes 105.99--pistal order N.Y. 105.90--A.Ex.Ca

105.83--Jel. 104.70--this is in favour of ***tes evidently,

as the cost of A.E. ****** must be added, no doubt

besides loss of time at ***ds. The ********* ******* at
