To John Rutherfurd
[Philadelphia, March 4, 1793–January 31, 1795]
I called at your Quarters a while ago to ask you to take with two or three friends a family Dinner with me to day.
A word in answer by the bearer will oblige.
Will you tell Mr. Frelinghuyssen1 that if he will be of the party I shall esteem it a favour.
ALS, anonymous donor.
1. Frederick Frelinghuysen, a lawyer and a member of the Continental Congress in 1778 and 1782, was a United States Senator from New Jersey.
