|9 October 1804
|Hobart, Benjamin (1781-1877)
|Mentions that he owes several people money, including the shoemaker, Mr. Smith, and Mr. Tobor, and asks his nephew to act as his representative in the matter. Also sends a receipt in this letter "for what [he] paid Dr. West for the postage of the Chronicle." Mentions that at the time he was writing this letter there was a storm that damaged several houses, killed cattle, blew logs down. The damage was so great that not even "one hundred thousand, dollars would ... make good." As a result, his father as well as Aaron Hobart's father will have a lot to do this winter.
