To Jerman Baker
Philadelphia Mar. 17. 1792.
The inclosed letter from Dr. Witherspoon came to hand soon after I had written mine of the 12th. to you on the subject. I have only therefore as an appendix to that letter to inclose it to you and ask an explanation on the subject of board as early as you can send it, that it may be forwarded in time to the Doctor. I am to add that the same doubt had arisen here with Mr. Patterson, and was one of the causes why the proposals were declined here. I am with great & sincere esteem Dr. Sir Your friend & servt.,
PrC (MHi). The Inclosed Letter from Witherspoon of 15 Mch. 1792, recorded in SJL as received 16 Mch., has not been found.
