I will take the earliest Opportunity, My Lord to communicate Mr Ansteys Appointment to the Members of Congress, and to recommend him to their Protection and Countenance in the Execution of the Business, with which he is charged.
And if your Lordship, or Mr Anstey should apprehend that it might be of any Service to him in his public or private Capacity, I will with Pleasure give him Letters of Recommendation to the Governors of the Several States, or to any other Characters to whom he may wish to be introduced, whenever Mr Anstey, will do me the Honour to call upon me.
With great Respect I have the Honour / to be, My Lord, your Lordships most / obedient and most humble servant
