I wrote to you some days since, that to request you to inform me when there was a prospect of your finishing as I intended to be with you, for certain reasons, before the conclusion. It is whispered here that some late changes in your scheme have taken place which give it a higher tone. Is this the case?
I leave town today to attend a circuit in a neighboring County, from which I shall return the last of the week, and shall be glad to find a line from you explanatory of the period of the probable termination of your business.
