Washington, 25th November 1796


We do ourselves the honor of inclosing, a Letter received from Mr Covachichi, one of the partners of Messrs Lynch & Sands in the late purchase from Bailey—Wishing, ardently, to preserve harmony among all City proprietors, we have paid the earliest attention to this gentleman’s Letter—A copy of our Letter to him, and an Extract from the contract of Morris & Greenleaf, alluded to, by Mr Covachichi, are also inclosed—We forbear to make any observations on this Subject—We are making the necessary arrangements for negotiating a Loan at Annapolis, that the business may be set on foot as soon as we hear from you—The Session is already far advanced, and we think, much longer delay may be injurious to the success of the application—We are &c.
