To John Adams from Timothy Pickering, 21 August 1797

Department of State Philadelphia Augt. 21. 1797.


The inclosed packet was handed to me yesterday by Colo. Moultrie of South-Carolina. I understood him that it contained an offer to convey to the U. States the title to a large tract of land in Georgia. He seemed anxious to obtain a speedy answer.

I have the honour to be / with great respect, / sir your most obt. servt.
