Will please to inform the Gent. Committee that, with a considerable difficulty I distributed their Tickets – they were sent to me, at too late a day, to give out to advantage. The best dancers are nearly all invited to two or three Balls given on the same day. Notwithstanding that I have got ladies enough for about two sets – Lafromboise father and son, M Beaubien Darling and may be some others will go. I have got Albion Allcott, for first Violinist, and I have heard C Beaubien will go down for assistant player. We, (our folks) will try to go
on Wednesday to your place. Tell Mr. Vaughan that I have done all I could for them – I will take down my Violin cello – to be out ten ta.
yours in haste
