To Francis Gibson, 17 February 1800
N York Febr. 17th. 1800
I have just received your letter of the tenth instant, and deeply regret the occurrence of which it informs me. I hope you have
taken effectu omitted nothing towards apprehending and bringing to justice, the villains, and bringing them to justice perpetrators of the horrid act.
