Philadelphia 27th: October 1799
I have your’s of the 25th. and am satisfied with your account of certain matters & things, which wanted decyphering to my comprehension—I am not yet quite settled in the City, though very anxious <
of> to be< ing> so—I should visit Trenton with pleasure for a few days, if I could take with me the information of having procured a place for an Office, in an eligible situation. I have one or two in my eyes, which would accommodate me much, could I obtain either of them and by waiting a few days I shall know what to expect from the present prospect of obtaining them—If you see me before you come here—I apprehend it will be towards the middle of this week—
I have no news for you, being as usual / yours
