Dear Sir,

This may inform you that we are in our usual health hoping this will find you all well. I wrote you last Sept for sum money but had no answer, but an oration delivered by Mr. Meach which will not answer my turn so well, a two hundred dollars which I am in a great strate for right now. As soon as you can send it to me. If Noble is with you pleas to et me no & tell him Mr. Belmano has no been heard of sence the evening of the 19th Dec. He came from Ruben Chapins at 10 o’clock to come to my hous. His hatt was found [?] miles above the falls & bundle he had found at the mouth of [?thing] Brook in Conecutt [Connecticut] River. My love to all.

Your Humb Servt
R. Orr

Doctor Hector Orr
