To Walter Livingston1
[New York] May 18. 1789
The interview between us yesterday was altogether unexpected. I thought it proper to be candid. But I trust you will consider what I said as confidential. I mean to consult mutual friends; and to act agreeably to the most scrupulous delicacy. My final determination shall be communicated.
I remain with regard Yr obed ser
