My Dear Cousin

I have sent my Sleigh with Bear skins, & Furs, and as the day is fine and the sleighing never better I hope you will find yourself better for a change of air, and as our Rooms are well air’d, you will find yourself as comfortably warm as you will be, in your own Room—we shall be at home to you & your own Family alone—and every thing done to make you comfortable & at your ease

I have procured a fine cask—a princeton Turkey and with the addition of something else—you shall have your Dinner on Table at any hour you may wish—I have also got a warm carriage to take you home again when you say you wish to return after Dinner. my Sleigh has seats for 4 persons wch: can take the 3 Ladies & yourself.—Judge Adams will come in his own sleigh.—

My Letter of Wednesday I hope you received, and please to bring the order you are required to sign to get your money from the state Treasurer

We hope to see you all <[. . .]> by Eleven oClock—<[. . .]>

yours affectionately
