From Samuel Williams, 21 August 1801
London, 21 Augt. 1801.
Yesterday I received your letter of the 29th. June.
I will duly close my public trusts by a full & precise state of all my pecuniary transactions, & will in a few days transmit my accounts to the Secretary of the Treasury.
I will pay over to Mr. King the balance of the public Money that may be in my hands.
Mr. Erving will, I hope, arrive as early as you expected, and serve the United States & the Claimants as faithfully as I have served them. I have the honor to be Sir, Your Obedient Humble Servant
