A day or two ago I requested / Col. Harrison to apply to you for a pair / of Pincers to fasten the wire of my teeth. –I hope / you furnished him with them.– I now wish / you would send me one of your scrapers / as my teeth stand in need of cleaning, and / I have little prospect of being in Philadelph. / soon.– It will come very safe by the Post– / & in return, the money shall be sent so soon as / I know the cost of it.– /
I am Sir / Yr. Very Hble Servt. / Go: Washington
