No. 3 South 6th Street 22nd of August 1796.
J. Churchman offers his respectful compliments to the President of the United States, & sends enclosed a Letter from Baron Vall-travers, this Letter Churchman has lately received from his friend William Barton Esqr. in a parcel containing thirteen other articles, including Letters, Memoirs, &ca from some of the principal Learned societies in Europe, all of which to himself are highly interesting. As the said parcel is said to have come through the hands of the President, soon after he left America, Churchman considers himself under many obligations to the President for his kindness & care, but partly on account of the good old Baron (who called upon him in London) Churchman is very sorry not to have had it in his power, to send the said Letter until the present late period.
