My dearest Friend
If you Set off on Thursday, I can hardly expect you to arrive at New York in Six days.
I had determined to send my Horses for You to Paulus Hook, but my Coachman was taken Sick two days ago with a bilious Cholic, and tho better is utterly unable to go. You must come on there with your hired Horses. If I could know when you would be at Bristol, I would meet you if I could.
Inclosed 150 dollars for Brisler as you desired. We are endeavouring to prepare for You as well as We can. But the Article of Expence is so astonishing that I find myself more pinched, than even a Harvard Vice President.
