From James Greenleaf
[New York] 30 July. 96
I must leave the City for Philada on Monday, to return in about a week—if before my departure you can with convenience give an answer on the proposition made to you,1 it will oblige me. If the general principle marked by me should meet your approbation, I shall have no objection to making very important alterations to square with your wishes relative to the pursuit of other objects.
