TranscriptDear Matty New York 3 June 1789

Anexed [Annexed?] is Copy of my last & Inclosed
[Enclosed?] is Meesrs Bourdieu & Cos and also Mr Norris
[whose?] take care of it. I have now the pleasure of your
favor of the 24 March & hope you soon after got
the Articles on shore. The Gov.t [Government?]
[Contractors?] promise their award in a day or two. I am
now at no loss to know where misrepresentations went
from hence by, and do assure you I am at
present in lower Spirits than I have been some
time purely an act of the detentions I meet with
for fear of making you, or our Sisters, uneasy
therefore earnestly request you may not, for,
that I will get from hence as soon as possible
I can with propriety, & to hear of your being
so will only add to my unhappiness, I have
not yet rec.d [received?] an answer from Maryland
but expect it every post, I believe the cause
you mention to be the Occasion of many
of the Failures, only take care you dont let
the Tennants [Tenants?] run too far behind in their
Rents its often dificult [difficult?] to bring it up again
I am very much pleased to hear of the Kings
recovery, & am sorry for the misfortune you
mention. I suppose it was John [Senor?] who
was here many years agoe [ago?] that has got David
Conynghams [Cunningham?] Estate. The [Ladies?] are in much
want of the Articles you mention The Congress
here are laying heavy Duties to pay the National
Expences [Expenses?]. I shall soon write you again when
perhaps may be in better Spirits & am with Love
&c Pacquet [Packet?]
