Title
Document, 1773 February 02
Abstract
Delayed answer to RandallÆs letter because too upset. Surprised at the otherÆs resentment; as a manager or official of the club, his objection to RandallÆs admission was not personal, but rather social. Believed that Randall did not have close connections to others in the club, which is a requisite of admission. Exhorts Randall to calm and reasonable behavior. Will apologize or fight him if shown that Jay had insulted his honor or had erred in his decision.
