Dr. Sir

There is much force in the reasons given herein for an appt. of a Successor to Genl. Smith, which I had proposed to delay till our return to Washington, if not till the meeting of Congs. Unless you think some other preferable on the whole to the Depy: Marshal, direct a Commission for him, or if you please a blank one, to be made out & forwarded for our signature.
