Quincy April 3d 1799.
Inclosed is a petition from Scotchar again. I request that yourself & the Attorney General would consider it & give me your opinions whether it can be granted.
I hope the easterly winds, which terminated in a furious storm of snow, have brought into some port or other, some good news from Europe or the West Indies.
I have the honor to be Sir your very humble servant.
