We see Several friends of the Goverment  have that paper thrice a week Gratis which is as often as we have the post, & as none have a greater regard to  the Goverments Int[erest] than we, you will we hope the more readily oblige us with it.

We hope you will pardon this freedom & excuse the trouble given you by
