Washington 1t. September 1806
Two Drafts amounting to between 5 & 6 thousand dollars for sheet iron, pig lead &c, bought by Mr Latrobe at Philadelphia & Baltimore were unexpectedly presented this forenoon, and after paying them I find my stock of Cash is reduced to about 1,700$ which makes it necessary to trouble you for another warrant by the return post. I have the honor to enclose a blank one for your signature & also a Statement by the Treasurer of maryland for the quarters interest due 1t. July last on the Balance of the Loans made by that state to the City.
I have the Honor to be with the greatest respect, Sir, Yr mo Ob Servt.
