To his Excellency Elias Boudinot June 20th, 1783

From the original letter at the Library of Congress.

Second Street June 20th, 1783 —


As the enclosed letter relates to an important national subject and conveys some information and touches on circumstances which may be improved into a foundation of revenue to the States both collectively and individually, I do myself the honor of presenting Congress with the perusal of it. It came to me yesterday by vessel from Bristol, and I observe is per favor of Mr. Cruger.

The place it is dated from, Salisbury (in Wiltshire) is one of the best farming countries in England

I am your Excellency’s Obt Humble Servant
