I have the honor to acknolege the receipt of your Excellency’s favor of the 19th. inst. with the exemplification of the treaties accompanying it as also the Bill of the secretary, amounting to 12½ dollars, for which I take the liberty of inclosing him a bank post note thro’ your Excellency, as I know not his particular address. Be pleased to accept my thanks for your attention and assurances...
The papers now communicated to your house for perusal being to be read in the other house also, and, as originals, to be returned to me, mr Coles, my Secretary, will attend to recieve them, after they shall have been read to the satisfaction of your house; and, having handed them to the other house for the same purpose, he will return them to me.

The bearer hereof, Monsr. de Hauterive, appointed Consul at New York in the place of M. de Crevecoeur, having brought me some very particular recommendations from friends at Paris , who would not give them lightly, I comply with their desire in presenting him to your notice.

The inclosed was delivered to me among a mass of letters from the post office, and reading only the first line of the superscription, I fell into the same error with the post office, & broke the outer seal. percieving the mistake, I did not break the inner one, and now inclose the packet to you, trusting to your indulgence for an error so entirely unintentional. I salute you with great respect...

I pray you therefore to write me a letter stating the transaction, & in...

I began to read it, but the dulness of the first pages made me give up the reading for a dip into here & there a passage, till I came to what respected myself. the falshood of that gave me a test for the rest of the work, & considering it always useless to read lies, I...

I have the honor to be with great respect & esteem Sir Your most...
As it is possible and perhaps probable that at the ensuing conferences on Lake Erie with the Northern and Western Indians they may be disposed to look back to antient treaties, it becomes necessary that we should collect them, in order to be in a state of preparation. This can only be done with the aid of the several state-offices where these treaties have been deposited, which, in New York I...
I duly recieved your favor of the 5th. inst. and have now to request transcripts of the Indian treaties made under the state of New York, as it is conceived they may be necessary to put the Commissioners in full possession of all facts relative to the subjects they have to treat of, and to prevent their being surprised by the producing of any matter whatever with which they may be...
