General Post Office July 23—1805.
I take the liberty to enclose a letter of June 17th. from Gov. Claiborne, on the subject of a new post-road, also a plan or chart of said road, a letter to yourself from Gov. Claiborne and another in a very tattered condition from Gov: Williams, & I pray you Sir, when it suits your convenience to return the letter & chart to me. Not one word has yet been heard from Abrahams. I am sir with great Esteem & Respect
Your afft. friend
