Accidental Circumstances prevented my seeing you previous to my departure to know the issue of the Arbitration—proposal to Mr Wheelen. I will thank you to inform me. I have heared that some late law of Pensylvania has put in jeopardy the property of Aliens where there were not actual settlements. I will thank you to explain this.

I am to acknowledge the Receipt of your Letters of the 20th. of December & 24th. instant.

I send you copy of a letter from the Attorney General of the 17 instant. I agree in opinion with that officer, that it is adviseable to cause two suits to be brought one in the circuit Court another in the State Court. The one in the Circuit Court ought to be Debt for the tax exclusive of the penalty and it ought to be in a sum of two thousand Dollars for an equivalent number of Carriages....
It is my opinion that the rule which has been adopted with regard to arrears of duty in the western survey of Pennsylvania may be extended to Kentucky.

I am with great...
