Rocky hill 15 Octob. 1783
By the last Post I was favord with your Letter of the 5 Instantand I take the earliest opportunity to acquaint you of my compliance with your request.
Tho’ I have ever been averse to Officers going to New York on every slight pretext, I was always ready to grant my permission when real business required their presence. With great regard am Dr Sir Your Most Obedient Servant
