Dear Sir,

The enclos’d will convince You how Affairs stand in
America.1

I am Sir, your Affectionate friend.

(John Dickinson)

The Bearer Dr. Hutchinson, a worthy young Gentleman of this place,
can give You a Detail of the several Engagements at Boston
&c.2

As several Copies of the Decl[aratio]n are gone by this Ship with several
Errors in them, it may be proper to have the inclos’d put first into
the Press.

Notes:

Receiver’s copy, Harvard University Libraries. In the hand of John
Dickinson; signature inked out.

1 Apparently a copy of the Declaration of the Causes and Necessity of Taking
up Arms.

2 Undoubtedly James Hutchinson (1752 – 93), Philadelphia physician, who went to
England at this time to complete his medical studies under Dr. John
Fothergill of London. DAB.
