When I inform you, that your letter of the 19th Ulto went to Philadelphia and returned to this place, before it was received by me; it will be admitted, I am persuaded, as an apology for my not having acknowledged the receipt of it sooner.

I received your letter of the 23d Ulto; but not at so early a period as might have been expected from the date of it.

States, than to any other object it had contemplated. In...
