Philadelphia 26th of August 1783
I was honor’d with your Excellency’s Favor of the 24th Inst. late last Night.
That Part of Jackson’s Regt now here will march to-Morrow Eveg or next Day Morng—Vose’s shall follow as soon as Circumstances will admit—No Desire of unnecessarily detaining them, or remaining myself having the least Revalence in my Bosom.
I was strongly persuaded my former Letters would have met your Excellency at Princeton—it having been positively asserted that you were arrived there.
My Letters by Major [Morrison] I hope have before This Come To Hand. I have the Honor to be with every Sentiment of Respect & Esteem Sir your Excellency’s most obedient & very humble Servant
