N. York. 3d. March. 1790
Your very friendly Letter inclosing the package intended for me; on the idea that I was in Charleston, came to hand about an hour ago. I cannot tell you how much I feel my self indebted to you, for your trouble and attention to a certain buisiness---aIl I have to say is, that to be able to be of service to you, or any friend of yours, will be pleasurable to me. I shall pay the most particular regard to your request relative to a certain publication and its author. I love truth and merit too well not to feel how much our country is obliged, as well as enlightned by your bold spirit and foresight.
I write this in haste as Col. Oswald is
waiting and to set off in a few hours. In my next I shall answer your Letter
more particularly. Our friend Col. Om d. Will inform you of every thing going
forward here on every subject. Congress is daily engaged on the Report of Mr.
Hamilton. I know no man in either house, who is not totally at a Loss on this
important subject---Funding the debt may, or may not be, a blessing, or a
Curse to the people of America, for ought I dare say, at present. But this I
sincerely regret. It will add strength and power to that faction that brought
about the late 2d. revolution, and it will make their princely fortunes. You
may judge that I stand in a particular situation not agreeable to me. for my
time at present is entirely taken up
farewell I am with sincere regard
Your most obdt. Sert.
