Booneton January 15th 1783
By Mr Morris on the 28th Ultimo, I enclosed you a Letter from my Brother, which I received from Mr John Reade, who went into New York with permission from Governor Livingston. By the last Eastern post I received the enclosed.
I feel myself extremely anxious to have the purpose effected about which we conversed, and would be much obliged to you, if you will indulge me with another interview at such time and place as you may think proper: That I may be able to know why so long delay has happened? and what are the present determinations (which I flatter myself are decisive). A particular account of which I shall immediately do myself the honor of communicating to You in person. With great Esteem I have the honor to be Your Excellencys very Obedient Humble Servant
