[Document, 1779 February 16]
Abstract
Cautions Livingston for having "a mind unbraced and nerves relaxed." Morris is busy with affairs of Congress and with "making oblations to Venus and sacrifices to Aesculapius -- Remember this is to be translated in the best sense -- and not so construed so as to mean vice or pox."The report arising from Hake's importations is not widely believed here.
