Unwilling to take the liberty to ask you to give yourself any particular trouble on the subject I have written the enclosed letters.1 I beg you to dispose of them as you suppose will best answer the end in view—that is to obtain a speedy distribution of the State into Districts and sub-districts.

With the truest attachment   I have the honor to be My Dear Sir   Your obed servant
