From Henry Cooper
St. Croix, 12 Nov. 1793. He encloses an executed consular bond and refers TJ to John Wilcocks of Philadelphia, who is well acquainted with his sureties. He will shortly provide the promised estimate of this island’s trade with the United States and such observations as will be useful, and hopes TJ has avoided the “dreadful calamity” in Philadelphia.
