Transcript of note at bottom of printed page and page two: Cahawba 17th Nov. 1821 Dear Sirs You will see by the above that our treasury is empty, and that we are likely to go home unrewarded for our valuable labour --we have as yet however earned but little. The committees have not yet reported. The most important measures in contemplation are the apportionment, the State Bank Charter which is now before the House tho not acted upon—the title of the Seminary lands & the established of a University in this state & the treasurers(?) Bill, which has not yet been reported. We have not received anything from you relative to the School Section near Florence, which was intimated before I left home, & if sent on, I fear will come to hand too late to be acted on this session. The health of this place has much improved since I arrived here, and the members generally at this time are well. Respectfully yours Jno.
