I thank you for the Communication, which you have been pleased to make to me under the 11th of July. It was handed to me on my return last evening from a Tour I have been making to the Northward and Westward, as far as Crown point & Fort Schuyler, to view the Posts and Country in that part of the United States Territory. The anticipations you have been obliged to make are indeed great, and...
Upon Enquiry of those who best know, I see no probability of Success from any Application to Authority in this Country, for Reasons which I have explained to our Minister of foreign Affairs.
