Esteemed Sir

With an apology for the intrusion, permit me to solicit your favorable reception of a small Volume the contents of which I heard from the pulpits last autumn when this part of our beloved Country was menaced with danger from the Common foe; believing the work calculated to produce good at this important crisis, I have taken the liberty, through my friend the Hon William Irving to forward you a Copy. I esteem the Author one of the best friends to the rigths sic of our Common Country, and the liberties of mankind; and by all to whom he is known, he is acknowledged to be a man of a clear mind, and great abilities, Joined with fervent piety. With my best wishes for your personal Health and public usefulness I have the honor to be with the Greatest Respect Your Humbl. Servt.
