With this you will receive a Map of the western part of the State of New York which I am requested by my brothers who reside near Niagara to present to you,—it is all laid down from actual survey.—I have accompanied it with a small tract which I drew up while congress had the act for establishing a land office under consideration, and agreeably to which the surveys were directed to be made;...
The first part of the fifth volume of the transactions of our Philosophical Society is now with the printer.—more than one half of it will consist of the astronomical journal kept on our southern boundary.—The charts, and plans, are yet with our executive, and I do not expect to obtain them till after the 4th. of March next.—I have been told by Mr. Pickering and others, that the work done on...

You are not unacquainted with the difficulties I had to encounter in executing the trust reposed in me by my country, but owing to a good constitution, and perseverance, have succeeded. My...
It is with real pleasure that I embrace this opportunity of congratulating you, on the elevated, and dignified station, which you hold by the voice of your country in our national legislature.
