I had the honor of receiving Your Excellency’s favor of this date by your Man this day.1
Major Jenifer writes me he intended to draw in your favor for 1000—or 1200£ Md Currency—every attention shall be paid to his draft—& I wish immediately to know the exact sum you want in New York, as I can accommodate you there, I believe—The sooner I get your demand upon that place the sooner I can make provision for it.2 I am sir, Yr Excellencys most Affe Servt
