New-York July 6. 1796
The inclosed letter was delivered me by a Friend of mine with directions to deliver it in person; Being in New York I am deprived of that pleasure. I therefore take the liberty of inclosing it to you—He has been ingaged for some years in carrying on a very elligant Building for the Earl of Hopton—He has a large Family & therefor thinks he can do little in this Country—Should you think proper to favor him with an Answer, I beg you would be so good as put it under cove[r] to John Currie Stone Mason, to the care Mr John Charters Bartley Street New York—& I will forward it him directly. I am Sir With Sentiments of the highest Respect your Mo. Obt Hbe St
