To Ebenezer Stevens
New-York Sept. 26th. 1799
I request that you will make inquiry for a small house, with five convenient rooms, as Quarters for my military family, and inform me of the result.
I imagine such a one may be found in Broadway, not very far from my house.1 I need not tell you that it should be in a situation, the most unexceptionably healthy.
With great consideration I am Sir Yr. obedt. Servt.
