Philadelphia April 3rd 1836
Having made a partial collection of the autographs of distinguished individuals, the undersigned would feel extremely gratified, if he could add yours to the number.
Also, if it would not be asking too great a favor, the undersigned would feel exceedingly happy, if you would at the same time enclose the autographs of Jay and Hamilton, or whatever other distinguished contemporary and friend of yours, you might feel equally proud in cherishing in the remembrance of an ardent admirer of greatness and patriotism. Trusting that you will excuse the abruptness of this request, the undersigned has the honor to be with great respect & esteem Your Most Obt. Servt.
