Washington, June 19, 1815.
I ask your indulgence to the liberty I take in offering to your attention the enclosed Extract of a letter from Judge Charlton. From other Sources I am assured the Sentiments therein expressed are common to most of the amici patriae of Georgia. I ought to add that I would not thus trespass on your attention, were I not assured that it was expected that I should convey to your Excellency the enclosed Sentiments, which I could not better do than by taking their very words.
With profound respect, I am, Sir Your faithful Servt
J. Gales, Jr.
