The Attorney for the District of Massachusetts1 will prosecute in the case of the Sloop Polly of Sandwich,2 which, as I learn from your letter of the 18th Ultimo, was licensed at your Office.

It is probable he will have occasion for the license bond, which I request you will forward to him upon his application.

I am, Sir,   Your Obedt Servant.
