Philadelphia 29 of the 6 mo. 1807.
My dear Friend,
Permit me to introduce to thee the bearer, Joseph Dunbar, a respectable citizen of the Mississippi Territory. The family of which he is a member and his connexions are extensive and respectable. He is now on his way home, expressed a desire to see thee, and will think himself honored and obliged by any commands thou mayst have to that Territory.
I duly received, at Brookville, thy note of the 10 instant together with the draught it contained.
Accept an assurance of my esteem and affection.
