Philadelphia Oct 10th 1787


I waited on a Major Pierce yesterday who informs me that those Gentlemen who were deranged by Resolve of Congress of Ma 22nd 1779 are entitled to their proportion of the Federal donation lands.

Cap Lawrence and Helen, now present join me in requesting you to deliver in our claim herewith enclosed to the Honorable General Knox by which you will confer an additional favour on your much obliged friends and very humble servants

Jno Richardson

Jos Howell Esquire
