1On 12 Feb., Knox submitted letters from Gov. William Blount of 14 and 15 Jan., and their enclosures, for GW’s consideration. According to GW’s executive journal, these two letters, which have not been identified, “contain’d nothing of any particular importance; but mention that the Creeks generally are irritated against the Spaniards & wish for peace with UStates” (JPP description begins Dorothy Twohig, ed. The Journal of the Proceedings of the President, 1793–1797. Charlottesville, Va., 1981. description ends , 283–84).

2For the enclosed letter from the governor of Pennsylvania, see Thomas Mifflin to GW, 11 February. No written response from Knox to Mifflin’s letter has been identified.
