My dear sir

I find myself fatigued with my journey or should wait on you this evening.

While in Newyork I mentioned to a friend of mine there your pair of horses & price—He has authorized me to buy them, money to be paid (1000 Ds.) on delivery.

I promised to write to him by tomorrows mail, & consequently must ask your decision this evening.

Please to present my best respects to Mrs Washington & tell her that I left her grandson in good health & very happy in his academic pursuits. Most humly & respt Servt
