He has been obliged so to express it, without specifying the sum, because it happens that no copy of the act granting the money is possessed here. If you could favor me with a copy of the act, it would enable the President to conform his draughts more satisfactorily to the tenor [of]1 it. I have the honor to be with great & sincere esteem, Sir your most obedient & most humble servt
