Gentlemen

Yesterday I received the letter you did me the honor to write to me on the 10th: instant,1 and laid it before Congress; but as seven States only have met, the Subject of it cannot be taken up so soon as its Importance requires.

I will transmit to you an authenticated copy of the Ratification of the definitive Treaty the moment that Congress shall put it into my power.

I am with much Respect & Esteem   Gentlemen   Your obedt: & hble Servt:

Thomas Mifflin
