Post Office New York, 10th. July 1807.
By this morning’s mail I was honored with your note under date of the 7th. instant, covering a letter for General Dearborne. Immediately on the receipt of it, I visited the Stage Offices in this City, where I was informed that he had not arrived. Whereupon I transmitted a Note to meet him at Powles-Hook; advising him that a dispatch from you awaited him at this Office.
With assurances of my high respect, I am sir, your most Obedt. servant,
