New York 12th Septer. 1805
I enclose a letter from Mr. Brackenridge, by which it appears that Robert Grayson is yet in Kentucky & would accept the office of commissr. in either of the lower districts.
You will also receive herewith a respectable application for the removal of Mr Pope collector of New Bedford. In his official conduct there is nothing remarkable; he is not always very correct in his accounts, not so deficient as to justify on that account a removal; but any body would do as well as he.
With great respect & sincere attachment Your obedt. Servt.
I intend leaving this city for Washington on the 23d instt.
