                 Dear Sir

                              We are oblidged to send Mr Finch away with out the Desert Spoons and the Thimbles, much against our wishes. We did not finish a Spoon— the task work on account of the Water and could get none finished today for you. We have given Mr. Finch an order for the Combs in N York, where he will probably find Mr. Curtis, who is now there. We regret that we are oblidged to disappoint you, but it must be so.

    Very Respectfully Yours
