To Thomas Chandler, 9 January 1800
New York Jany. 9th. 1800
I have received your letter of the twenty sixth of December.
It rests with the President to determine on the acceptance of resignations; and your letter has been sent to the War Department for the purpose of being laid before him.
As soon as The result, when known, shall be communicated to you.
