From Edward Newenham
Carlow [Ireland] 20th Novr 1794
I send this to Newry, as I see a Ship is to sail from that Port in a few days for New Yorke1—a Proclamation is just Issued by this Government for all Vessels coming from Maryland, to perform Quarantine as a dangerous Fever had Spread through that State2—God Send it a Speedy Stop.
Lady Newenham joins me in Sincere respects to Mrs Washington & you. I remain Dear Sir with due Respect & perfect Esteem your most obliged & most faithfull Humble Servt
