Letter from Jonas Phillips objecting to the proposed plan for a new synagogue, because it would not leave enough space behind for other buildings, and would be too close to neighboring houses. He also objected to the proposed location of the door, which he saw as inconvenient. Jonas Phillips was a veteran of the American Revolutionary War, a prominent Philadelphia merchant, and one of the founders of Mikveh Israel. In 1782 he was serving as president of the congregation.
