Th:J. to mr Gallatin
Will you be so good as to read my letter to mr Smith, and then seal & send it with your own to the Post office? also to read the within rough draught to Genl. Sullivan & suggest any alterations you think proper. when mr Rodney’s opinion shall be printed I shall be glad a few copies, say half a dozen or a dozen. Affectionate salutations.
