Stork’s Counsel has this moment served a Rule upon me to show cause on Saturday next, why he should not be discharged on Common Bail and also to show cause of action–you will therefore be good enough to procure me Wm’s affidavit of the debt. & that no part of it has been paid to him–He admitted the note here, but it was qualified with a statement of setoff. I transmit you a copy of the note, in order to identify it.

Shall I beg your attention to the subject of my last to which I have as yet received no answer. In case your affid’t does not reach me by Saturday next I will have the Rule enlarged---

Very Truly Yours

Wm. W. Haly
