Tim Whiting Writes to John Fisher, West Point: Rope, Oars and Weary Feet, May 9, 1779
Letter from Tim Whiting to Fisher regarding his weary feet

I am, Dr Sir, your Very
P.S. Forgive me if I offend in Obliging you to think on last fast day, which I spent in prayer while my weary feet marched the way from New Borough to West Point. But All the invocations of a mind Repleat with ardant Wishes for a Horse could not obtain one—Therefore I was obliged to serve the public at the Expence of my (since) weary Limbs.
