Head Quarters 14th April 1783
I inclose to your Excellency a Copy of a Letter which I have received by Yesterdays post.
As it involves a variety of Considerations, & I would write to get the best Information on its Subject that I can, before I give my Sentiments to the Gentlemen—I have to request that your Excellency will favor me with your Tho’ts in as extensive a View as you think proper—& to give them to me at the earliest day in your power. I have the Honor to be.
