To John W. Livingston, Jr., 2 May 1800
NY. May 2nd. 1800
I presume, by this time, your health is sufficiently established
I have received your letter of the twenty eighth of April.
By this time, I hope, your health is so far established as to permit you to join your corps. If
so not, you will do it without delay inform me of your situation.
