Last night the enclos'd Packets came under my Care from Lord Loudoun. He desires my meeting him the 17th of next Mo. at Philadelphia, for w'ch place I intend (God willing) to set out next week. It is unlucky I had not more early Notice, as our Assembly was to meet in 14 days, but I must prorogue them to a further Day, whether My L'd desires Y'r Company there at that Time, I know not, but if he does, you will be strengthen'd in Time to comply. I'm greatly hurried, must therefore leave off.
