From Aaron Burr
24 May 98
Have the goodness to inform me how long you will remain in Phila. if till the close of the Session, I hope to come & pass an hour with you. No freedom of communication, by letter, can be indulged consistently with any degree of discretion
Be assured of my very great attachment & esteem
RC (DLC); endorsed by TJ: “Burr Aaron. recieved in his Ire of May 24.98. forwarded to Dr Currie,” which along with TJ’s reply to Burr of 26 May implies that a letter from Burr that is recorded in SJL as having been received from New York on 25 May was not the above note but a longer letter enclosing it, now missing, that TJ sent on to James Currie.
