Robinson’s June 11th 1783.
I had the honor early in the Month of April, to address your Excellency, on the subject of visiting my Friends on Long Island, (from whom I have been absent seven years) requesting to return Via New York.
Unsuccessfull in that Application, I now beg leave to ask the same Indulgence I did then. I have the Honor to be Your Excellency’s most Obedient and most humble Servant
