To James McHenry, 19 November 1799
NY. Nor. 19—99
I enclose to you a letter from General Wilkinson which has just been delivered to me. It was
a brought by the Gentleman whom the General recommends. His appearance is much in his favour, and I do not hesitate to advise that the wish of General Wilkinson with respect to him be complied with.
