|My Dearest Friend||Phil. Feb. 11. 1797|
I pray you to make Such Arrangements, or at least to be casting in your Mind a Plan for bringing all the females you may want with you—
I cannot however Say any Thing clearly untill I know that I shall have a House—If the Congress dont find me furniture I shall have no House, untill the Salary shall enable me to procure some—I will not run in Debt. A Comtee have it under Consideration. As soon as I know I shall write you.
We begin to fear that Peace is at a distance.
I am / with All Affection
