I have to acknowledge the receipt of your letters of the 18th. and 28th. instant as agents for the state of North Carolina.

The very obliging manner, in which you was pleased to assure me of the appointment of my nephew Philip Church , and the actual appointment of my relation Captan Hamilton to a Lieutenancy in the Navy, which I just learn from the Marine Department, are circumstances from which I derive much pleasure, which I consider as conferring upon me a personal obligation, and for which I beg you to accept...
I had the honor of receiving, an hour since, your letter of the 22d instant, with the copy of one to you from Colonel Smith.

The rule of promotion, by succession, does not in any service, as far as my knowlege goes, apply to a new corps, in its first organisation. Officers for such a corps, it is...
