From William Fisher to his father saying that 'it is in trouble that I write to you on this unpleasant subject- but as my late unbecoming behaviour has displeased you so much that you'll not suffer me to speak to you personally.....I am very sorry for what I have done and said...and promise never to be guilt of the like again' He also mentions that there is a 'serious sum of money owing & though it is in my name, yet, not one penny of it my debt, nor will ever be paid by me' He also adds that if his father won't help him he will be under ' immediate necesity of quiting the Country'
