FC (PPAP: Peale Letter Book); in Peale’s hand; undated except as above, but the letter succeeding this one was written after an illness and apparently after some lapse of time on 12 Jan. 1792. The one immediately preceding it is the note to TJ printed at 3 Dec. 1791. Neither Peale’s two notes nor TJ’s presumed replies are recorded in SJL. It is possible that the above inquiry was sent on 6, 13, 20, or 27 Dec. but, given all the circumstances, the 13th seems the more plausible date.
