Auburn August 21. 1848.
My Dear George,
When I was in New York
the papers for a loan to Bishop Hughes
Birth: 1797-06-24 Death: 1864-01-03

of $10,000 was submitted to me and I
found them complete and satisfactory
except that the collateral bond of
Moses H Grinnell
Birth: 1803-03-03 Death: 1877-11-24
& R M. Blatchford
Birth: 1798-04-24 Death: 1875-09-04

had not yet been executed – When I was
last in Albany Mr Weed
Birth: 1797-11-15 Death: 1882-11-22
showed me
the Bond which had been drawn
for them to execute, and I approved
it. I am now informed that it is
executed. So that the Bond Mortgage
and collateral Bond are ready to be
delivered on the payment of the money to
the Phoenix Bank – by whom the securities
are now held. Will you inform my

my father
Birth: 1768-12-05 Death: 1849-08-24
of this and of my approval of
the loan – and then meet Mr Weed in
New York and complete the transaction
Mr Weed will see that you are paid
your expenses for going to New York.
I am at home for only one day
and have to follow up a circuit
of professional engagements for a month to
come – which prevents my going to New
York.
Faithfully yours
William H. Seward
George M. Grier Esquire
