Nov. 3rd, 1788.

Edward Jones, Esq., Fayetteville.

Dear Sir:—

Without losing a Minute’s time, I request you to forward the inclosed Letter any opportunity to Hillsboro. I want some papers of which I did not know of when I wrote you to-day, and I am apprehensive that Mr. Walters is coming down with his family. Besides considering how much I shall be employed for two months to come, I must take care to have them in time; the judges will not allow me common indulgencies. So much for espousing the cause of Truth and Justice among a nation of knaves and fools.


The papers which I want, I have directed to be sent to the care of Ingram. Tell him that I rely on his Care in sending them down.
