Your favors of the 2d of Decr 6th of March 3d of Apl 27th of July and first of Augt came very safe to hand. In that of July I am sorry to find that you were in such a bad state of health, and that neither Mr Greens nor Hamiltons prescriptions had then the desired effect.

My whole attention being now fixed upon preparing for my trip to England . . . I find I can’t leave the country with any peace of mind . . . without placing a general power of attorney with some Gentm. of known probity. In this part of the Colony I have not a Friend (yourself excepted) in whom I can repose such confidence . . . I should by no means wish to add more trouble to your own...
