Nathaniel Gorham to Nathan Dane (August 20, 1787)

Philadelphia Aug. 20 1787
Dear Sir
. . . The Proprietors of a large library in this place have complimented us with the use of it. We sometimes saunter there for amusement. Among other books are large treatises on Heraldry. Mr. King and I have sometimes diverted ourselves in looking for the coats of Arms of most of our Acquaintances. Among others we found the name of Dane, as per the inclosed Sheet. Believe me to be very sincerely Yours.
N. Gorham
