|My dear Sir,||Washington Feby 10th 1797|
I have this moment returned from Berkley, and as business will call me to Philadelphia in the course of next week I shall have the pleasure of communicating to you fully every thing relative to the subject of the Arsenal land &c. At present I have only time to say, that Rutherford’s deed has not yet come to hand, and that Wager’s is in the office to be recorded at the Court of this month. The absence of one of the parties prevented its being done at the last Court; but I have the strongest obligation for their attendance at this. My best respects attend Mrs Washington & the family. I am most truly & respectfully Your obliged & sincere friend
