Richmond. June 12th. 1807.
It is material that I should be furnished with an authentic copy of the Presidents proclamation in relation to Burr & his confederates; or proclamations if there were more than one. The orders issued from the War & Navy Departments duly authenticated ought also to be forwarded, whether they are to be used on the trial or not. I regret that it is not in my power to give you some account of our movements here during the last three days. I have hardly time to write this letter. with Sincere respect,
