To Stephen Moylan
Mt Vernon Oct. 23d 1793
Your letter of the 21st was handed to me last Night. As I expect to be in the vicinity of Philadelphia (German town I believe) on the first of November I shall decline saying any thing on the subject of your application ’til then—It being my invariable custom to possess myself of the circumstances of every case before I decide on a nomination to the office1—With esteem & regard I am Sir Yr very Hble Servt
