Columbus. Ga. [Georgia] Mar. March 18/82.
Dear Col. [Colonel] Boyd.

I have not heard from you since Nov. 8th last; & therefore judge you have not disposed of the Amory place.

If you see no immediate prospect, please mail the deed to me; as I expect to go on to Boston early in April & would like to call on Mr. Austin & hand him back the paper -- & report my stewardship.

At same time will inform him of any proposition you may wish to make. I doubt if he will care to spend any money on the property.

With kind wishes & best regards I am


Yours very truly
[Signed] Amory Dexter.
