1Coxe wrote on the back of this letter that he had received it on August 1, 1794. The “Sundry papers” which James Wilson, associate justice of the Supreme Court, had sent to Coxe obviously concerned the Whiskey Insurrection in western Pennsylvania. See “Conference Concerning the Insurrection in Western Pennsylvania,” August 2, 1794, note 9. For background information on the Whiskey Insurrection, see “Deposition of Francis Mentges,” August 1, 1794.

2Coxe endorsed this letter “ansd.” Letter not found.
