Sir; The original association was obliged to be cut in many different pieces, to give to the compositors; so that it is out of my power, of course, to send it; and there is not one printed copy remaining, notwithstanding we compleated upwards of two thousand. The instructions were not printed by us: I have directed Dick, however, to call at the other office for them. I am really sorry you cannot be obliged with the first part of your request; and am, sir, your very humble servt, Jno. Pinkney August 24, 1774
