Philadelphia 23d August 1796
Be so good as to inform me of the precise time, and at what place in the City of New York, the horse you were so obliging as to procure for me can be delivered; and a person shall be there in order to receive him: and the sooner, the more convenient it will be for me.
Let the account of his expences for seed & pasturage; and whatever you shall agree to give the Post Rider (or who ever brings him to New York) for his trouble, & the expence of doing it, be mentioned in your letter; and the person who goes for him shall be furnished with money to pay the whole. The One hundred and thirty dollars—the cost of him, has, as I presume you have been advised, been paid to - - - - agreeably to your desire. My best respects attend Mrs & Miss Wadsworth—& with very great esteem & regard—I am—Dear Sir Your Obedt & Obliged
