The private letter which you was so good as to accompany your Official communication with, calls for and has my warmest acknowledgements. The point which I have mentioned in my Official letter, as determining my acceptance of the Office of Supervisor, would have produced that issue, had the measure been less eligible in other respects than it really is, but had I upon any consideration been...
The enclosed papers contain parts of the information which I expect to furnish upon the subject of Manufactures in Virginia, and are transmitted agreeably to your request. These papers have come from the two lower Surveys of the District; the information they contain as to the particular Neighbourhoods from which they are drawn, may be applied, with propriety to the whole of those Surveys:...
Since mine of the 4th. Instant, covering some information upon Manufactures, I have received an additional report from General Stevens, Inspector of Survey No. 2, which, together with his letter, and a Copy of one he received from one of his Collectors I now do myself the pleasure to enclose. It was my intention, at first, to have obtained the Reports of all the Inspectors, and then have made...

By last post I received an Answer from Colo. Newton to my enquiries concerning a successor to Mr. Wells at Smithfield. He says that Mr. Copeland Parker is under the Character of an industrious attentive Man, and he thinks as proper a person for the Offices of Inspector & Surveyor as any to be engaged there. He also informs me that Colo. Lindsay has appointed him to Act during the vacancy. I...

I have been favored with a packet from you containing several Copies of your letter of the 4th. Instant to the Speaker of the House of Representatives. I had fully anticipated the decided contradictions contained in this letter, to the suggestions which gave rise to it, having seen the Resolutions alluded to. The Copies of the letter are circulated as far as the Numbers would admit, and I...
With very great pleasure I have complied with your request in getting the final proceedings of the House of Representatives inserted in the most public and generally circulating paper of this place, and sent them to Norfolk Petersburg Alexandria & Winchester with a request through my friends at these places, that they be inserted in their papers, which will certainly be done. The votes of Colo...
I am favored with your[s] of the 10th. Instant. Your determination to persevere with patience in your labors to establish a permanent and successful system of Revenue & credit for the United States, must give satisfaction to all who feel that these are the only supports of public safety and private prosperity. I am well assured that, in private life, you experienced pecuniary advantages, and...
I am favored with yours of the 15th June, with a Copy of the Account which accompanied your report, of the same date, to the President. It is true that suggestions such as you have heard have been thrown out here, and, according to the disposition of the hearers, have been credited and discredited. This you must expect will be the case, until time or events, shall take from your Persecutors...

Yours of the 8th. Instant covering a letter for Mr. Augustine Davis the post Master at this place was recd. two posts ago, and was instantly delivered to himself by my own hands. Yours of the same date directing that the Expences incurred in forwarding your letters of the 26th March & 18th April to sundry Collectors of the Customs in this district, are to constitute charges against the public...
I do not write this letter as congratulatory upon the final issue of the enquiry into the Treasury department, as I never conceived you exposed to receive injury therefrom. I write to express my most sincere wishes that you will not suffer the illiberality with which you have been treated, to deprive the public of your services, at least until the Storm which hangs over us, and is to be...
You have upon sundry occasions done me the favor to request my opinions upon the public Sentiment in Virginia. Conceiving that there can never have been an occurrence giving you greater anxiety than the present Insurgency in the Western parts of Pensylvania, or upon which a knowledge of the public opinions and dispositions here could be more interesting, I anticipate your request, and proceed...

I have been favored with yours of the 1st Instant. All accounts from the scene of the late insurrection agree that the measures which have been pursued have been as successful in their issue, as they were wise in their commencement. I have also the satisfaction of finding that our returned Troops pretty generally agree, that a less force than was called forth would have been opposed, and that...
I have been favored with yours of the 19th. Instant covering your private letter of the same date to Governor Lee. I hear he has left Winchester, & will probably be here tomorrow or next day, and have thought it best to keep his letter until his arrival. The explanations contained in this letter to him, are such as I had anticipated, as you might have perceived from mine to you of the 11th....
By the last Mail I had the Honor to receive yours of the 29th. Ult. communicating the Presidents offer of the place of Comptroller of the Treasury. Calls to public Office from that source can never be received by me but with immotions of the highest reverence and gratification, dictated as they uniformly are by motives of public good, they constitute the most flattering evidences of merit,...
The absence of the Clerk of our House of Delegates where I believe are lodged the authenticated reports of the debt redeemed from year to year has prevented my complying with your request, in the manner, and so early, as I wished. He is at the Springs for his Health, & no person is authorised to shew his records. He has not yet returned, & having lately learned that his health continues bad, I...
In mine of sometime in June I promised you, by this date, a more full communication on the subject of State debt redeemed by Virginia from the end of the War with great Britain, to the end of the year 1789. Having made the best inquiry this subject will admit of, I am Satisfied that the following Statement is pretty right, that is to say Redeemed by Taxes, Sales of Land &c 2,613,692 dols....

I received your letter of the 3d. Instant inclosing two plans which have been in contemplation for a division of the State of Virginia into districts for the Recruiting Service, and mentioning that it was probable I had before recd. from the Secretary of War one of the plans, A, as a guide in forming Contracts. I have never recd. from the Secretary of War either of those plans. In a letter...
Since I enclosed you, on the 31st. Instant the plan which I had formed for Recruiting divisions of Virginia, I have seen Lt Colo. Bentley who satisfies me that Abingdon which I arranged as in Colo. Parkers circle, more properly applies to the other. I have therefore written to Colo. Parker that this Station is to be considered as arranged in Colo. Bentleys circle, and that this plan is so far...
I beg you to be assured that I have not been inattentive to your request in regard to an Aid de Camp—From my more early enquiries I was apprehensive that the appointments in Virginia would not afford you a choice to your satisfaction; But finding that Colo. Bentley was about, from time to time, to have meetings with his officers at this place, I thought it best to wait until that better means...
