Inclosed is a letter which I will thank you to hand to its destination.
While I have my pen in my hand, give me leave to mention a particular subject to you. Mr. Pinckney, it is said, desires to return to the United States. In this case a successor will be wanted. If we had power to make a man for the purpose, we could not imagine a fitter than Mr. King.1 He is tired of the Senate, and I fear will resign at all events. I presume he would accept the mission to England. Can there be a doubt that it will be wise to offer it to him?1
Rufus King, who was appointed and accepted.
Now first printed from the Pickering papers in possession of the Massachusetts Historical Society.
