George Wythe to Edmund Randolph (June 16, 1787)

80 SUPPLEMENT TO FARRAND'S RECORDS to obtain your sentiments on points of consequence which must here receive their discussion. . . . We hear nothing from N. Hampshire, not even who is president. Farewell R. King ALS (Library of Congress) GEORGE WYTHE TO EDMUND RANDOLPH Williamsburgh , r6 of June 1 7 8 7 Mrs. W.'s state of health is so low and she is so emaciated, that my apprehensions are not a little afflicting, and, if the worst should not befall, she must linger, I fear, a long time. In no other circumstances would I withdraw from the employment, to which I had the honour to be appointed but, as probably I shall not return to Philadelphia, if, sir, to appoint one in my room be judged adviseable, I hereby authorize you to consider this letter as a resignation no less valid than a solemn act for that express purpose. My best wishes attend you and the other respectable personages with whom I was thought worthy to be associated
