[dateline] London 1 Sepr. 1781
We had the pleasure to receive several letters from you before we left St. E– the
contents of which were properly attended to, our answers have good reason to think
did not reach you. Since that period our sufferings have been very great, but for
prudential reasons must be silent thereon. Beg to refer you to Mr. Jno. Witherspoon,1
who take the liberty of introducing to you. With the greatest respect we are, Sir
Your most obt. huml. serts.
