I have to acknowledge the receipt of your letters of the 18th. and 28th. instant as agents for the state of North Carolina. Altho the laws relative to the payment of the invalid pensioners fully authorize the payment of the money to those individuals, I do not consider them as warranting a payment to the State of North Carolina whose Executive appears to have discharged a part of the demands...

I trust you are sufficiently convinced of my respect for and attachment to you to render an apology for the liberty, I am going to take unnecessary. I learnt with pain that you may not probably be here ’till late in the session. I fear that this will give some handle to your enemies to misrepresent—and though I am persuaded you are very indifferent personally to the event of a certain...

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.

Perhaps however the Treasurer may pay in expectation of it. The Question when the Vice President entered...
You will find enclosed your account, which I take the liberty to send, lest by not adverting to the state of it, some inconvenience might insue.

The time which has elapsed since my letter of the first of August last was delivered to you precludes the further expectation of an answer.
