I wrote you a hasty Letter yesterday in which I returned the draught which accompanied your favour of September 26th. In my opinion the style temper and spirit of the composition are well suited to the subject & will do you honour. I have only to submit a few criticisms to your consideration. The observations respecting Mr. T. Pinckneys predilection for France—in page 19. and his official...

Among various applications for appointments connected with the Army is one from Mr. Fishburne Wharton a young Gentleman of this City, which I take the liberty to recommend to your consideration. Mr. Wharton belongs to a very respectable family of the Society of Friends—he is a Son of the late President Wharton—he is amiable virtuous & intelligent—his education has been good and in my opinion...
From what has passed between Mr. McHenry & your self and the agents of the War Department at Rhode Island, respecting the establishment of a Hospital there, I perceive that there exists a misapprehension which so far as it affects me, I am desirous of explaining. The Act of July 16th. 1798 for the relief of sick and disabled seamen, imposes a Tax on Seamens wages, which is to be applied 1st....
