The furlough that you was so obliging as to give Mr Lewis Morris at my request being about to expire & the present prospects affording little probability so useful to the public in the field as in his present station I am induced to ask from your Excellency a continuance of it.

Instead thereof he has put into my hands a number of his draughts, which will be negociated with the receivers of the public taxes...
