As I shall leave this place on the 24th. inst. for Philadelphia nothing which you send hither after you recieve this will find me here. Indeed what you will have sent the week before, may perhaps1 not be in time, but I shall lodge orders with the Postmaster in Richmond to send them back to Philadelphia, where they will arrive before me. I am with great esteem Dear Sir your affectionate friend & servt.
