[dateline] Brussels Septr. 25th 1782
I did not receive any Slips by the two last Posts.
I am particularly obliged to your Excellency for your Favor of the 16th. Instant.
The Dutchman Compliment was really polite the Sentiments of certain public Characters
relative to the American Independance lead to something Substantial.
I find it is the wish of some to see the letters now publishing in the news papers
collected in a Pamphlet. If you, Sir, approve it, is there any corrections and alterations
that you may be inclined to make, if you chuse to transmit them to me, they shall
be conveyed to the Amateurs.1
Give me leave to beg of your Excellency to send the inclosed by the first Opportunity.2
[salute] I have the Honour of being Sir your Excellencys Most Obedient Humble Servt.
