Dear Sir,

A Gentleman has ask’d particulars of me about a Packet which he says he understood from you was to sail soon with our Dispatches. Nothing having communicated to me on that subject; I beg the favor of you to inform me whether it is so with the name of the vessel, when and from whence she will sail.7 I have the honor to be with great respect dear Sir Your most Obedient Servant

Arthur Lee
