Philadelphia Feby 11th
My Dear Sir
I expect early in the next week to leave this place with Mrs. Hamilton & the Children for Albany. Our stay at New York will be a very few days, but during the time we wish not to incommode any private family. Therefore you will oblige me by engaging for us lodgings while we stay at some lodging house.
Thursday we may arrive.
ALS, Mr. John F. Reed, Upper Darby, Pennsylvania.
