Gorham, March 13, 1850
Wm Ledyard Esq.
Your letter of the 5th relative to Mrs. Crommetts 6th assessment tax. The bill was sent to the man who was to collect the Bills in Kennebeck County. About three weeks ago Mr. Asa Palmer of this town came into the office & I believe paid Mrs. Crommett's tax to the Treasurer. At any rate he told the Treasurer he would pay it & the Treasurer (D. C. Emery Esq) said it was all well, so I suppose it is settled.
