Detroit 26th. July: 1807.
A Contemptible faction here influenced by a Number of British Subjects, are opposing ⟨ev⟩ery measure of Government, and I have this moment been informed, have sent a represen⟨t⟩ation to the President. It is here viewed with so much Contempt that no measures ⟨h⟩ave been taken to counteract it.
All I request, at present is, that no unfavorable opinion may be formed, until the true ⟨s⟩tate of things are made known
I am sorry to communicate, that the Secretary of the Territory, and the Receiver of public Monies associate with these people I am very Respectfully Your Most Obedient Servant
