Description
Letter of Mar. 19 given him by Ezekiel Cowgell; he intends to move, by June 1, to the Landing; can not comply with Howells's request as he is no fit tenant for any place; has no objection to the Thomases taking the Gibson place and the Meadows; Colonel Lattimer has not paid yet, promising, however, to do so the following week; advises Rodney to take counsel about the horses before trading; Philadelphia merchants have bought the "Hyder-Alley," of sixteen six-pounders, and sent her down the bay as a coastguard under Captain Barny; Colonel Pope's vessels are showing great spirit; the Assembly is fitting out one similar to them; Mr. McKean has just told him of the capture of a refugee, Captain Jones, who seems to have ventured into Philadelphia to spy out about shipping matters; hopes he will be hanged; his prospects of success with regard to his complaint increase every day, but he is anxious to get home; sends by John Freeman, last Thursday's paper.
