Newburgh 15th Jany 1783.
My dear Sir,
When the Party arrived yesterday with the Sleigh, I was engaged with Mr Howell—before I was at liberty they had left this—This is my apology for not writing to you yesterday.
I have now to thank you for the Sleigh, which I think very handsome—convenient—& well executed. Shall I thank you for giving the Master Workman a couple of Guineas, to be laid out in liquor for those who have been engaged in this business?
Mrs Washington joins in Compliments to Mrs Knox—and I am with much truth and affection Dr Sir Yr Most Obedt Servt
