Letter to Alex. Hamilton, Postmaster, Queenston, from William Smith, Waterloo near Fort Erie. The letter states that he is anxious to settle his affairs and asks that Hamilton select a day to do so. He notes that in his last letter Hamilton seemed to have the idea that the Mansfield transaction is of a private nature and regards him alone, which is not the case. The award was for work done at the wharf at Fort Erie for Smith and Hamilton, which was paid by him out of his own private purse. Part of the costs were paid to the plaintiffs attorney, by a debt due by him to Smith and Hamilton. He asks that Hamilton withdraw the claim given in to Mess. Clark and Street, as he is about to settle his account with them, March 24, 1833. Postmarked Fort Erie 25 March 1833 [date of postmark handwritten].
