Phila. 13th Decr 1783
The Trunk, & two boxes or Cases which you brought from New York for me, with a few other Articles which I shall send to you tomorrow, I would have go on by Land as my Papers, & other valuable things are contained in them.
The Boxes & other parcels which were sent from Rocky hill by Colo. Morgan, may go by Water to Alexandria, for which place a Vessel (Colo. Biddle informs me) is just on the point of Sailing, & will probably be the last for that River, Potomack, this Season—let me entreat therefore that the opportunity may not be best by sending them by her.
Inclosed is 40 Dollars—5 more than your Acct. I am Sir Yr most Obedt Servt
