I enclose the land proclamations for your signature. Mr Morrow has some objections to Gibson’s capacity & is to confer with Mr Tiffin respecting the degree of trust wh. may be placed in him or Sloane as to the safe keeping of public monies. Until his answer is received, I think the nominations of land officers might be postponed.
Respectfully Your obedt. Servt.
