To Peter Carr
Philadelphia June 2. 
It is my expectation to leave this on the 25th. and to be at our July court. but something may very possibly arise which may keep me a few days longer. I must ask the favor of you therefore to press Kinsolving at court to pay up his balance, as I have considerable paiments to make immediately on my arrival at home. he may lodge the money with Colo. Bell. this being the last moment of the post I must refer you for news to mr Randolph to whom I have stated some interesting dispatches from mr Gerry. I am Dear Sir
Your affectionate friend & servt
