I had the honor to receive your favor of the 6th. Ulto. by the last Mail— A Commission for Mr. Williams as Secretary of this Territory also came on—he has been prevailed on to accept provisionally, and I expect will write on accordingly—I hope however he may be prevailed on to Continue, for I am apprehensive It will be almost impossible to get a character qualified for this office for the...
I am informed by a friend whose moderation and discretion are such, as to induce Violent partizans and Credulous Zealots, to suppose he did not discountenance their measures, that letters have been written to Mr. Thomas M Randolph, and Mr. Epps by a Mr. Branham making the most false statements and representations respecting this Territory and its political Situation— All I know of this young...

The officer I mean is a General for this Territory, and the Character I allude to is Colo. Benijah...
In some of my former communications, you have a pretty full account of the existence of a party formed during my absence last year, and their ultimate object: They have never ceased their exertions to embarrass and throw the Territory into confusion; knowing, it is not themselves, but the Governor on whom the greatest responsibility of keeping the community tranquil devolves. My continuing to...
On the 6 Ultimo I wrote to you a few lines enclosing the Copy of a letter I had previously written to Mr Gallatin—a report having been since circulated by a few, relative to the existance of a certain fact which if true might tend to induce a belief that I did not possess correct information on a certain subject treated of in that Communication, induces me to address you at present. The report...

And this anxiety is increased in proportion to our disappointment in the two last mails bringing nothing from the Eastward beyond Nashville.
