Fair Haven 24th. July 1841
Rev Joseph Smith
D. Sir— I have this moment recd. a letter from dated yesterday at in which he states his intention of leaving for the west— It certainly was my expectation that I should again see him before his departure and be able to make some arrangement with him respecting the interest due to myself Mr [Smith] Tuttle and Mr [John] Gillet— In this I am disappointed and considering that a proposition for effecting this object eminated from your brother and the to which no allusion has since been made by them or any body else I and Mr Tuttle think we have much reason to be dis satisfied at this silence and apparent neglect— Now all the transactions relating to have by me and my friends been entered into in the most perfect good faith and will con tinue to be conducted upon the most honorable principles— Permit me to ask whether this is a proper return for the con fidence we have bestowed and for the indulgence whe have extended?— If you have not already requested your bro ther to call on me when he arrives east will you write him immediately and say that it is my urgent wish?
Relative to the Ivins Note the has written me and refered to at New Egypt on whom I shall call next week.
Your Obt. Servant
