Perhaps we misunderstood you. But, if we are right in our interpretation of your letter, or do not see how we can rightfully do what you purpose. That sum cannot be acknowledged as “receipts” unless it is “received” by the [?]; + if “received,” it must be voted out, on some grant, I [?] [?] Ex.

Hoping for an early explanation, we remain very [?] yours.
