Recipient: Charles Thomson

Sir,

The letter that you favored me with on the 18th. instant reached me yesterday after the post had left the City, so that the papers enclosed for my signature must be detained until next post day, unless Doctr. Gardener should afford me an opportunity of more quickly conveying them – With the returned papers, you will receive also enclosed a letter from the honorable Mr Rutledge, and one from Lt. Colo. Harmer, both which I received yesterday. I pray you Sir to accept my thanks for your obliging wishes for the recovery of my health, which is certainly better than when I left New York, I am, with much esteem, Sir

your most obedient and very humble servant.

Richard Henry Lee
