The Work in Question must, I am Sensible, be to you, more a matter of Curiosity than use, but as I am in hopes of Procuring a Number of Names in the district where the Laws of Maryland are in force, I feel anxious to obtain Your Patronage to it

I avail myself of this occasion to Mention that I was at Annapolis when Your invitation for friday Week-last was Sent
