Philadelphia 10th May 1793
Sir -
I have received your letter of the 10th instant - was made happy in finding that the Money forwarded by me for the QM had gone safely to hand. Before this reaches you the Indians under Prior will be with you and I must request that you cause the Waggons that convey them to return without a moments unnecessary delay - the baggage of the Indians left this City on the 14 instant. Martin has it in charge, and has orders to drive to Pittsburg with all possible despatch he assured me he would be there in twenty days - forward my respects to Mrs Craig tell her the Indiamen begin to arrive and that her China shall command mor attention - adieu -
Sincerely yours
Samuel Hodgdon
