To James McHenry, 17 March 1800
N York March 17. 1800
Your letter of the 14th. instant enclosing Regulations respecting certain Supplies and objects of special and extra expence has been delivered to me. I have likewise received Regulations respecting Quarters and servants to officers, and shall do whatever may depend upon me towards carrying them into effect.
