I have received your favor of the 2d Instt and thank you for the several articles of European intelligence contained in it. permit me to solicit a continuation of such advices as you may think interesting respecting the Military or political Manoeuvres of foreign powers. such communications will not only be a private gratification, but may produce public good; as a perfect knowledge of these matters will enable me to decide with more certainty & precision on doubtful operations which may be had in contemplation than I possibly can do without. With great esteem & regard I am Dr Sir Yr Most Obt Hble Se[rvt]
