To Milo Mason

     I am much gratified, my dear Sir, that you authorise me to anticipate the pleasure of having you, the other gentlemen, & the ladies of the fort to dine with me. Any day you may appoint will be convenient to us, & I hope it may suit you to come over before you remove to your encampment. Suppose you allow me to fix the day after tomorrow (tuesday), & if, in the mean time, you do not say otherwise, I will then expect you. I send Mrs M. a few apricots which she will do me the favor to accept— very sincerely & respectfully

Bush. Washington
