From Henry Lee

Citey tavern [Philadelphia] 7th Novr [1795]1

sir

I am to receive in the course of next month Judge Wilsons bonds payable in one & two years to the amount of your demand for your dismal swamp lands.

If you will take your original price thus payable I will purchase—my enquiry respecting the Judges affairs leaves not a doubt in my mind of his ability & I had full conviction from a recent transaction of his honor & integrity. Most respectfully your ob. st

H. Lee

ALS, DLC:GW.

1The year is supplied from the docket on the letter.
