On Monday last the President left this City for Monticello. Having taken into consideration your request to be absent from Orleans the ensuing winter, he gives his assent to it, provided the state and prospect of public affairs should urge no objection to it, of which you must of necessity be the judge, and provided that you do not leave the Territory, before the actual return of Mr. Graham,...

Your letter of the 22d. ult. enclosing your account for $200 dollars, as extra expenses in a public service to Atacapas & Opelousas, has been received. As it is without precedent & might prove inconvenient to allow to the Governors of Territories personal expenses within the limits of their government, I lose no time in intimating that the present charge cannot be passed to your credit. I am...
I have recd. a letter from Messrs: Winter & Harman inclosing a copy of their Memorial to you of Oct. last, with your answer, and claiming a permission to introduce into the Mississippi a ship with slaves which they expect from New Providence.
