I received yesterday your favour of May 25 th: not numbered but the fifth that has reached me from you; the four former ones I have acknowledged before.

I have your Letter of the 28th: I will see the Secy of War this morning, and you may rely upon it, that the movement will be suspended.

I have postponed to answer the letter you did me the honor to write last untill I should have found a good opportunity to forward your pacquets to Mr. Monroe, and M. Van Staphorsts & Co. They went, about two weeks ago, in an American Ship, and were committed to the care of a Mr. Murgatroyd of Philadelphia. He is a young [man] of good connexions here, and I doubt not will place them in the...
I should begin my letter with many excuses, that I, unknown and stranger to You, make bold, to address You; but a man of Your celebrity, of such patriotism and public spirit, as You have shewn the world, is certainly a benevolent man. So I confidently hope, You will pardon me the liberty I take. Your worthy Country men Mr. J. Belknap and president Stiles of Yale College have exhorted me, to...
