CAPT. JOS. REED TO THOMAS BURKE.

Walnut Street, March 12th, 3 o'clock.

Sir:

The Secretary has just now shown me your Favour of this Morning. As your Letter was addressed, I understood it to be in Council—& as I wrote three Letters that Day to the Board of War the mistake was the more easy. But it being a pure Mistake I shall with pleasure rectify it & if agreeable meet you in the Council Chamber at the Hour before named. Or at any other time & Place agreeable to the Committee.

I am Sir with due Respect,
Your mo. obdt. & very Hum. Servt.,
JOS. REED.
