From Smibert in Boston to a British supplier, he asks that his pictures be "packed up in a good case and sent by the first opportunity," and wrote: "If the arts are about to leave Great Britain I wish they may take their flight into our new world that they may at least remain in some part of the British dominions, remember me to all my old friends among the painters. I would willingly have acknowledged your favours by something from this country but can think of nothing worth sending."
