My Dear Sir:
A slight indisposition prevented my meeting you at E. Town, which I should otherwise have done with great pleasure.
It is wished for a particular purpose to know who are the writers of Valerius, Hancock, Belisarius, Atticus. If any thing about them is known in a manner that can be depended upon, I will thank you for it in confidence.
The fever in this town has become serious. The alarm, however, exceeds the quantum of disease and danger. It is not ascertained that the fever is contagious. It is clearly traced to local causes, but it is sufficiently mortal. Bleeding is found fatal. Most of our physicians purge more or less, some with calomel, I fear more than does good; bark, wine, etc., plentifully used, and with good effect. They, however, all behave well, and shrink not from their duty.
Show the last paragraph of this letter to Doctor Stevens, from whom, though I have written to him, I have not received a line since I came to New York.1
