This morning a Flag arrived from New York, with the inclosed Letters for your Excellency.

in the Flag came up William Blake Esqr with a desire to proceed immediately to Philadelphia—as he had no other permission than the inclosed certificate from the Honbe Henry Lawrence Esqr I could not (agreeable to my instructions) permit him to Land, & therefore order’d him to return back in the Flag—he is very anxious to come out, & he requests permission from your Excellency for that purpose. I have the Honor to be with the greatest respect Your Excellencies most obt Hume servant
