GOVERNOR WILLIAM LIVINGSTON TO JAY.
Elizabeth Town, 28 Augt, 1786.
Are you totally discouraged from coming to Elizabeth Town by our bad luck at fishing on our last jaunt? and have you forgot the motto of perseverando? Pray let us try again, and I can almost assure you of better success. I wish you could come next Friday, and if not interfering with Peter’s studies, to bring my little favourite with you. I need not tell you how glad all of us would be to see Mrs. Jay at the same time, if both of you can at the same time conveniently be spared from the family. I wish your answer, and if you come, I should be glad that instead of the pompous train that usually attends the great in Europe or Asia, yours were composed, amongst any others you may choose, of a few lobsters and blackfish.
I am, Sir, Your most humble Servant,
