Feb 4 1839
To: Dr. Calvin McQuesten, Brockport, New York
From: Albany, New York

Mr. McQuesten,

Please have the goodness to advertise my House for sale in one of your Village papers for one month, and send me one of the papers which contains the advertisement. Also please give me a statement of money rec'd and paid out should there be any money coming to me--enclose the sum by mail as I am in want of all the funds that I can get. Let me know what is the best offer you can get for it at your place. I will sell cheap--any information for my benefit will confer a favour upon you.

Yours Respectfully
P. P. Shaw
