Description
Cannot return home as yet; hopes the Assembly will not reelect him; Major [Robert] Troup has brought good news from Gates; the people here are weary of business stagnation caused by the closing of the ports; they despise the continental money; there is plenty of produce, but farmers will not sell; wickedness of the southern and middle parts of the country. Continuing, Oct. 2, he says that the frigate Delaware was treacherously given up or sold by her commander; Capt. [Nicholas] Biddle of the Randolph has brought four prizes into Charleston; sends compliments to members of the Trumbull family, and to others.
