Last night I had the pleasure to receive your obliging letter of the 13 of this month: and thank you for your information of your intention to embarke for Europe.

Your friend...

ALS : American Philosophical Society You are mistaken in imagining that I am apprehensive of your carrying dangerous Intelligence to your Father; for while he remains where he is, he could make no use of it were you to know and acquaint him with all that passes.

On further reflection it appears to me that the houses you mentioned of Mrs. Buddin’s would suit me so perfectly that I must beg the favor of you to ensure me the refusal of two of them adjoining to each other, on the best terms you can.
