Jany. 23. 1807.
Enclosed are the papers, you requested me to lay before the Judges—Judge Cranch did not sit in this case—When Judge Fitzhugh returned them to me, I informed him that I shoud send them to Mr. Kilty, he replied that this wou’d be unnecessary, as he exspected his communication to you wou’d be satisfactory, in consequence of the Judges observation I have not forwarded them to Mr. Kilty—If however you shou’d still want his opinion I will immediately, with great respect.
I am Sir Yr. Obt. Sevt.
