I send you the keys of the Trunk containing the late Mr. Thos. Morris’s papers, which were forgot the other day.6 Please acknowledge the receipt that I may know they are safe. I wish very much to have an answer tonight, if it is convenient, to my Letter to the Commissioners relative to the Commercial Agents,7 as I want to finish that business so as to write by tomorrows post.
