For some cause I have been barred from Locateing my Military Land warrant ever sence Kentucky has become a seperate State from the State of Virginia, I have waited with Sympathy a number of years for the Honble Congress, of the United States, to rectify the preceeding errors, (but invain,) I solicite your Opinion whether you, think, that those warrants aluded to above, will be Valid, and be Suffered to be Located, or become Nugatary and of no account—or whether the State of Virginia, will not in Justice make Remuneration, to the Warworn Officers and Soldiers of the Revolution, any Information you should think proper to give me will be thankfully, received and remain in confidence with an officer of the Revolution—

I am, Dear Sir, with sentiments of esteem, and respects your Mot Obt Servt
