"As to Steven there is one blessing bestowed on this family viz <undscr>his absense</undscr> -- altho the most faithfull labourer on the land, his immorality was insupportable (as I have often told yr Revce.). ^But the^ Farm sufferes on another side. The price paid for Steven was intended to cover a debt necessarily incurred to stop the wife ^& children^ of one of our married men from being sent to Georgia or some other place equally distant. She & family consisting of one child & near her time for another were priced at $250, which sum is due me with interest & is now payable."
