Nover. 3. 1807
There are two land offices lately established for which Registers & Receivers must be appointed this winter. A proclamation announcing the sale of lands will also be necessary. I expect to have the papers ready for you about beginning of December. One office is to be at Jeffersonville, & for that you had concluded to appoint Taylor & Gwathney. The other office is to be opened at a place to be fixed by you & not yet agreed on, but not far from the Muskingum. You have already great many applications & recommendations for that office & I have several. M’Kennan is one of the applicants.
Respectfully Your obedt. Sevt.
