Letter from George Jeffrey Tillotson, Brooklyn, [Conn.], to Amos Augustus Phelps, 1845 Ap[ri]l 8th
George Jeffrey Tillotson writes to Amos A. Phelps informing him that he has sent a letter for him to Boston where he requests Phelps "to pay the principal of your note this spring." Tillotson again refers to the letter and asks Phelps to inquire about investing in the "National Insurance Co." based in Boston. He then provides a summary of the payments Phelps has made to him and tells him about his travel plans for the coming week before continuing to discuss his investments.
