To Oliver Wolcott, Junior

When lately in Philadelphia,1 I mention’d to you that the Secretary of War had given me to expect some Communication from you previous to the Execution of an Order which he has given me respecting a Military Escort to protect the marking of an Indian boundary line.2

This is intended to remind you of the matter and to repeat to you that I wait for this Communication.

With great respect   I have the honor &c
