Kidall bound for Baltimore, I have put a Case of plants which are sent to you by Mr Mazzei, and is address’d to the Care of Mr. Purviance collector for that port.—By the same I have obtain’d passages for the two Sculpters procur’d at Rome, and for whom I have requested Mr Purviance to give the necessary facilities for their conveyance to Washington.
I have the honor to be with the highest respect Your devoted Servant
