Wmsburg 6 Feb. 1807
Influenced by the same motives which some time ago led me to solicit your kind assistance in communicating information to the heirs of our late common friend Mr. Belini, I have now again to request on the same subject your co-operation. The enclosed letters contain a remittance by Bill of Exchange, & precluded as I am from all intercourse with Italy, I know of no mode of conveyance but thro’ some of the State’s vessels to the Mediterranean, which are under your direction.
With all due respect & esteem I am Sir your most obedt. Servt.
