I have given No. 1. of the Freeman    to our Printer who will
reprint it this week--it is well written & I would be glad
to have all the Numbers published in the Delaware Paper--
Jacob Broom to Tench Coxe, Wilmington, 25 Februarkyyj<
your favor of the 18th current came to hand enclosing
the Papers; & agreeably to your request I presented the Boston
paper to Mr. Dickinson with yr. complimts. &c--
It gives me great pleasure to find that the Constitution
is making it's way so successfully--An event of vast
importance to the United States--the present Generation &
their Posterity.--
I have not seen the Pennsylvanian alluded to in your
Letter--the Freeman has been republished here.--
I recd. a letter from Mr. Gibbs a few days ago informing
me that he intended for Wilmington e're now; in expectation
of his coming I deferred sending my vouchers until it shou'd
be by himself--I look for him daily.--
