Philada. Decr. 16th. ’08
Permit me to request your acceptance of a Treatise on the means of preserving the Health of Soldiers & sailors &c. I would have presented it personally, when I had the honor of paying my respects to you a few days since, but the work had not then issued from the press; I wish it were more worthy your perusal
I have the honor to subscribe myself your hume. Sert.
