Letter I
To Mr. Sarsefield.
  I CAME hither but ten minutes ago, and write this letter in the bar of the stage-house. I wish not to lose a moment in informing you of what has happened. I cannot do justice to my own feelings when I reflect upon the rashness of which I have been guilty.
  I will give you the particulars to-morrow. At present, I shall only say that Clithero is alive, is apprized of your wife’s arrival and abode in New York, and has set out with mysterious intentions to visit her.  2
  May Heaven avert the consequences of such a design! May you be enabled, by some means, to prevent their meeting! If you cannot prevent it—but I must not reason on such an event, nor lengthen out this letter.
