Phila. 5 July. 1806
It has not hitherto been in my power to come to Washington as I intended this summer, to recieve such papers as you intend to put into my hands relative to the history in question.—If you can let me known by the return of post that I shall find you there, & that I can have a little time to confer with you previous to your summer retreat, I will then take a run there immediately.
Yr. obet. & obliged sert.
