PETER JAY TO WILLIAM LIVINGSTON.
Rye, the 31st January, 1774.
My son having informed me of his Inclination of being connected in your Family, and your favourable reception of his application, I take the earliest opportunity of acquainting you with our concurrence.
Tho’ we have not the pleasure of knowing the young Lady, yet the confidence we have in our son’s Prudence, satisfies us of the Propriety of his choice. Give me leave, Sir, to assure you that I will always readily adopt every measure that may conduce to their happiness, and tend to render the Connection between our Familys agreeable to both.
Be pleased to present our Compliments to Mrs. Livingston and the young Lady.1
