From John Evans1
New York, May 24, 1797. “The many inconveniencies resulting from the delay and expence of my continuance in this City, strike so powerfully at the prosperity of my views and business; as to reduce me to the absolute necessity of entreeting your opinion of the Case, submitted to you by me, at as early an Hour, as you possibly and conveniently can.…”
