From George Washington1

Sir,

Your letter of the 24th. ulto., (enclosing a letter from Govr. St. Clair, and sundry papers relating to the subject of the settlements which have been made under purchases from Judge Symmes) I have duly received. The Secretary of State, as well as I recollect, has already written both to Govr. St. Clair2 & Judge Symmes3 on this subject; but whether he has or has not, it can make no material difference to let the matter rest until my return to Philada. when I shall pay the necessary attention to it.

I am Sir,   Yr. most hble Servt.

G: Washington
