Description
Excuses himself for not having answered letter of Aug. 30; Yeates never informed him of his removal from Philadelphia to Lancaster; learns that he is employed in the prothonotary's office; this will be advantageous whenever he begins to put his studies into practice; condoles with him that his eyes "instead of beholding the beautiful Nymphs ... of Philada must now be intertain'd with tawny Dutch Squaws;" will enlarge on this subject in his next, knowing it to be delightful to his friend's volatile and amorous disposition.
