Washington Oct. 25. 07.
I recieved, the day before yesterday, a small box addressed to me, on opening which, I found in it letters from mr Eccleston of Lancaster England, for yourself, Judge Marshall & myself. the one to me informed me that the box contained a Medal of Genl. Washington for each of us, and the one under cover to me lying uppermost, I took it out, without disturbing the package of what remained in the box. mr Chevallie passing on yesterday evening, I got him to take charge of the box (which I nailed again) and to deposit it with mr Gadsden Alexa. subject to your order. you will therefore be so good as to call for it at your convenience, and I will take the liberty of requesting your forwarding to Judge Marshall the articles for him. I inclose you a letter from mr Eccleston to mr Maury, our Consul at Liverpool, through whom he sent the box, & salute you with great esteem & respect.
