Summoned by Congress to Princeton he wishes information, before he goes, concerning the intended purchase of Saratoga Springs; asks for "a general view of the plan in contemplation, and of the agency I am to have in it; that I may not, in the one thing needful, be involved beyond my abilities; or caught unprepared if the purchase is within the compass of my means.".
