Key Phrases I have received your letter of the 27th of March postponing your visit to [Philadelphia] until a period of thirty days after that date. I regret exceedingly the existence of any circumstance which suspended your visit. But as the dispositions of the President of the United States remain the same as to the objects mentioned in my former letter, I can with great truth assure you that your visit at the time you proposed will be cordially received. General Chapin, who is appointed an agent to the Five Nations, will either accompany you to this city or he will obtain some other person for that purpose, as shall be agreed upon between you and him
