Finding Captn. Loxley still detained I avail myself of the opportunity thereby afforded, to inform you that I have received the paper concerning which I was sollicitous from Mr. Morris, to whom it had been sent by mistake, and that I shall observe the directions contained in your favor of the 1st. Jany. I am happy to find that circumstances have not occasioned the detention of this paper to be...

The session of Congress has been so tediously spun out that I found it necessary on account of the advanced season, my family concerns & the state of my own health to relinquish farther attendance in the Legislature, for the present. I did not however leave my post ’till some measures material for...
The inclosed copy of additional Instructions to the Commanders of British men of War and Privateers will shew the farther embarrassment to which our commerce will be subjected in the present War. These instructions though dated the eighth of June were not finally issued to the Admiralty till the 28th. Lord Grenville justifies them from the authority of the writers on the law of nations...
I have had the honor of receiving the Presidents instructions concerning my assuming the direction of the expedition against the Southern Indians, communicated in a Letter of the 7th of this Month from the Department of War, in consequence whereof I am making arrangements for taking a position nearer to the scene of action, from whence I may give a general direction to the three Corps who are...

If the nomination and appointment mentioned to me in your favor of the 6th of this Month should take place I will endeavor to execute the duties of the mission to the best of my ability.
