From George Washington
Augt. 30th. 1793
The President returns to the Secretary of State the letter from Mr. Murry with its enclosure—and observes, that if the Secretary is clear in the propriety of proceeding on the subject in the manner stated in the Secretary’s note, he wishes the Secretary to do so; but in case he is not, the President thinks it would be best to have a consultation upon it.
