To Rufus King
[November 11, 1793]
My Dear Sir
Inclosed in a letter which I have just received from poor Fenno.1 It speaks for itself.
If you can without delay raise 1000 Dollars in New York, I will endeavor to raise another Thousand at Philadelphia. If this cannot be done we must lose his services & he will be the victim of his honest public spirit.
If may either be in the form of gift or loan.
R King Esqr
