I thank you for the information contained in your note of this date —although I am not, nor have not been, under any apprehension of the desolating Fever. I am to dine this day at Mr Willings, and if you are disengaged, will have the honor of drinking Tea with you in Third Street, afterwards.

I have the Pleasure to send the Book of Prints that you were so obliging as to accept from your Friend. I have also taken the liberty to add a few that I admire on a presumption that the Mind capable of tracing with Pleasure the military Progress of the Hero whose Battles they delineate will also have the associate Taste and admire fine representations of the Work of God in the human Form.
