Since you left this, Governor Jay called on me, regretted that he had not had an opportunity of conversing with you, as he wished to have proposed to you to take the Superintendance of the fortifications at NYork should the Legislature make provision for those works.

I shall not fail to call the attention of the senate to the insecure state of the port of New York and to detail the distressing consequences which must result should the Metropolis be laid under contribution, be conflagreated, or possessed by a hostile foreign power: but I apprehend nothing more will be done than Authorizing the Governor to take measures for Its security, If a war with some...
