To Oliver Wolcott, Junior1

New York Oct. 28. 1795

Dr. Sir.

I have seen with pleasure your reply to the calm observer.2 I believe it is as far as you ought to go but more particular explanation will be useful & from me now a private man intirely proper. I therefore hope to receive as soon as may be the statements I requested.3
