John Nunn to Arthur S. Brockenbrough
|Dr Sir||Louisa Jany 2. 1821|
Agreeably to your request I have waited until now to see Mr N. Barksdale, but waited in vain; I have had several offers for the Negroes but did not hire them out as [. . .] I hourly expected to see him. I send Nelson up to let you know that the Negroes may return to you provided you will give the sum of two hundred and fifty Dollars for them & clothe them as well as heretofore, the Negroes are anxious to return, therefore I would give you the preference. Your answer by the return of Nelson will let me know whether you take the Negroes or not. I am yours most respectfully.
