Although the letter, of which the enclosed is a copy, is of old date, it has but just been received from the Secretary of War. Without aid, it will be impossible for me to carry his views into effect; which, & the confidence I place in you, is the best apology I can make for asking you to assist me, in the business required.

Your favors of the 8th 13th & 20th Ulto have been duly received; the latter, enclosing one from Mr Henry.

I am not less...
Your consent to accept the office of Quarter Master General to the armies of the United States, gave me sincere pleasure.

General Marshall, who did me the favour to spend an evening at this place on his way to Philadelphia, confirms the report I had before received of the utility of Mr Bookers improved threshing Machine; and added, that a letter for that Gentleman directed to your care, would certainly reach him. As I am extremely desirous, (and that with as little delay as possible) to get one or two erected,...
The present dangerous crisis of public affairs, makes one anxious to know the Sentiments of our citizens in different parts of this Commonwealth; and no one ha[vin]g better opportunities to form an opinion of the central part thereof, than yourself—this will be my apology for giving you the trouble of a letter at this time. Several Counties above the Blue ridge have come forward with warm...
Wishing to fill the office of Attorney General of the United States with a gentleman of acknowledged abilities; and of the best disposition to promote the welfare of this country; permit me to ask you (confidentially) if Colo. Innes would, in all respects, do for such an appointment? That he possesses great natural endowments, I have always understood; and that he is a friend to the ⟨general...
