Reading:

"My Dear Sir
As the Court is not likely to have a long session, I must pray you to hasten on yr argument, in the Case of Peters v Warren In ? Co.
Are you ever to be done with the License lease, 15 Galton law? Really, I am mortified at the ? ee ridicule, east upon good old Commonwealth, both by friend and foe, in consequence of what has happened, and is happening, to her, from that source. How can any sane man the continuance of the obnoxious law? For my part, I have always thought it indefensible in principle, &, in its operation most mischievous to the cause, which it was expected to promote. Pray do beseech our friends to have some little regard to what every body is saying about us.
Yours, always, with most sincere esteem
Danl Webster"
