The inclosed paper came to me for I know not what purpose; as it came, just as you see it, without a scrip of a pen: perhaps that I might join in the sollicitation. Augustus Chouteau, the first signer, I always considered as the most respectable man of the territory, and the more valuable as he is a native. Of the other signers I know nothing; and I know how easy it is to get signers to such a...

I inclose you two letters from mr. Burrall, postmaster of Baltimore. You will percieve by them that the removal of mr. Granger has spread some dismay in the ranks. I lodged in the same house with him (Francis’s) during the sessions of Congress of 97.98.99. We breakfasted, dined &c. at the same table. He classed himself with the federalists, but I did not know why, for he scarcely ever uttered...

Your favor of Feb. 7. was duly recieved. That which it gave me reason to expect from mr. G. did not come till the 4th. inst.

In my letter of yesterday I forgot to put the inclosed one from mr Mill, which I now send merely to inform you of his wishes, and to do on it what you find right. He is an excellent young man, modest, cautious & very manageable. His skill in architecture will be proved by his drawings & he has had a good deal of experience. He married a daughter of Colo. Smith of Winchester formerly (perhaps...
