Smithfield, Ile [sic] of Wight, 11 May /46

[Dear Sir,]

The bearer Albert comes up to help his bro. do the Plaistering [sic] in the halls. I have told him to Examine the sand to be used, not knowing whether the work is begun or not, & to procure such as in the judgment of him and Osborne will make the best work.

You may rely on what he tells you, and if I mistake not they will show you firstrate [sic] work, his Plaistering [sic] and rough casting here has preference to any done in this part of the state.

[Respectfully Yours]

Dabney Cosby

It will be some 12 or 16 days before I can get released here.
