Philadelphia Nov. 26. 1790.
From a letter received from the President mr Lear is satisfied he cannot be here to-day and doubts even the possibility of his arrival tomorrow. of course our expedition of to-day would be certainly fruitless, and is therefore laid aside agreeably to a message I have received from Genl. Knox & the attorney Genl.
Your’s affectionately & respectfully
MHi: Adams Papers.
