From Elias Vanderhorst, 20 March 1802
March 20. 1802.
Above is a Copy of my last respects to you of ⟨the⟩ 3d. Instt. the Hope, Cap. Phelps, Via New-York, since which I ⟨ha⟩ve not been honored with any of your favors.
Enclosed are four Letters which I have recd. from Mr: ⟨K⟩ing for you; also a few News-Papers & a late London Price Currt., ⟨to⟩ which I beg leave to refer you for what is now passing in this ⟨qu⟩arter. The Season here for Agricultural Pursuits was never more favorable than at Present, nor do I recollect the fields at any former Period so early in the year, wearing a more promising appearance. I have the Honor to be with every sentiment of the ⟨mo⟩st Perfect esteem & respect, Sir Your most Obedt. & Most Hle Servt.
