From James Monroe
Fredbg. May 10. 1793.
I could wish Mr. Beckley might receive [this?] immediately. But if he should not1 be in town will you be so kind as possess him of it as soon as possible, adverting to the consideration that it requires of him to perform something in Phila.
I wrote you a few days past and shall again from Richmd. whither I am just sitting out. Yrs. affectionately
