I have the honor to inclose with this a letter from William Morrison of Kaskaskia, requesting a lease of the Lead Mines of the United States lying East of the Mississippi, and between Rock river and the Ouisconsin—and at Prairie de Chien. Those Mines are of great value, and, from the best information I have been able to obtain, are of great extent. Mr. Morrison is a man of large property, and...

I...
I take the liberty to address you on a subject, which to me is of a very interesting nature— It is not unlikely that you have already heard that I have no longer any connection with the University of Georgia —The real cause of that disconnection is to be found in the Federal Character of the Board of Trustees, who have appointed a Clergyman & a Federalist as my Successor—The Board which...
I have the honour to inclose, with this, a Sketch copied from a Vignette which it is proposed to cause to be impressid on the Patents for Bounty Lands to the Soldiers of the late army. I do not think myself authorised to annex this ornament to the Patent without your approbation. The Vignette is engraved by the celebrated Anderson of New York--it will not increase at all the expence of the...

I have the honor to present with this in obedience to your directions, a map of the United states, on which are exhibited the various Cessions of Lands by treaties with Indian tribes. The areas of the different Cessions are estimated only—and consequently until actually surveyed, must be considered as imperfect. I am &c Letterbook copy ( DNA : RG 49, Division C, Misc.
