Transcription: Dedham Ms Oct 2d 18/ Charles Henry Hall, Esqre New York Care of Thos H. Smith Dedham Alvan Fisher October 1st 1822 Recd 5th [?] Charles H. Hall Esqre, Dedham 1st October 1822 Dear Sir The paintings which you employ'd me to execute are finished, indeed they have been for some time, but the sickness in New York has delayed my sending them, as I thot It would be uncertain (owing to the confusion in NY) If they found you. I have now written to desire that you inform me where to address them. As I am about to leave this part of the country for the South and therefore to break up my establishment here, It is necessary for to send them somewhere. I have the four pictures in one box. I presume that you will be able to select yours. You will oblige me by answering this as soon as convenient. Please make my compliments acceptable to Mrs. Hall and also to your brother. I am sir yours respectfully, Alvan Fisher
