The Preceding are Copies of my last per the Bristol Packet, Capt. Orr, Via Boston, since which I have not had the pleasure of hearing from you.

Enclosed is a Letter I have Just recd from Mr. King ⟨fo⟩r you, to which I have added two of our last News–Papers, begging ⟨to⟩ refer you to them for what is now passing in this quarter ⟨as to⟩ a Public Nature. The Season here continues remarkably fine for Vegetation, and the fields were never more Promising ⟨th⟩an they are at present, in consequence of which, and the late favorable Harvest, the prices of all kinds of Provisions have fallen considerably. I have the Honor to be with every sentiment of ⟨es⟩teem & respect Sir, Your most Obed. & most Hl. Servt.

Elias Vander Horst
