Dear Sir

I have duly received your favors referring to me the size & execution of the seal for your court, and as I can best deside on this after a consultation with the artist & due enquiry from him, I refer it till my return to Philadelphia which will be within about ten days. — As I propose to return home to reside at the close of the next session of Congress I hope I shall then have opportunities of sometimes seeing you, & perhaps be able to induce you to see this part of our country. in all times & places I shall ever be with the sincerest attachment Dear Sir

Your affectionate friend & servant
