To Jonathan Cass, 16 November 1799

NY. Novr. 16th. 1799

Sir,

I have received your letter of the fourteenth instant.

The drawing of back rations in the case you mention would be irregular.

I consent to your going to Philadelphia in December, but you will be pleased to limit your absence to the space of a week.

When you leave Wilmington for Philadelphia be so good as to drop me a line informing me of it.

With

Major Cass—
