Dr. Sir/
     It has so happened, that my personal attendance at Edenton this court is unnessary, Therefore I have declined going.  If you can obtain a copy of the bill of costs which is annexed to the appeal of the suit, Charles GRANDY vs HUMPHRIES Exors we can have the costs of said suit settled on your return. A copy of the bill of Costs which originated in the county Court will be essentially necessary as it will shew the costs distinct,-- Majr GRANDY has requested of me to receive his atto fee in the county Court say $4.  I should suppose the Execution (if the Debt is paid), could be returned Satisfied as there is no doubt but the cost below can be adjusted, at any time, provided you get the bill of costs aforsd.
     With Respect I am Dr Sir yours, &c
