I have received your Excellencys letter inclosing the Queries. I doubt not a matter of so great importance will attract the first attention of the Legislature—After closing the war so gloriously, I hope we shall not be deficient either in Justice or Gratitude to those who have been so particularly instrumental in obtaining an honorable peace, as the American Army—with the greatest esteem I...
I have been favoured with your Excellency’s Letter of the 17th instant. I am greatly obliged to your Excellency for offering to write to General Haldeman respecting the release of Mr Roading tho’ you have no correspondence with him; or to forward a Letter from me to him on that subject.

Application is made to me for a passport for one Major Tapping to go to Staten Island to procure a sum of money upon loan which he wants to borrow for the purpose of building a slitting mill in this State. The man is recommended to me as a good Whig, & it is rendered probable to me that by the means of a brother of his, on that Island, who has always been esteemed a friend to our cause, he...
I have been honoured with your Excellency’s Letter of the 16th instant apologizing for your opening a Letter to me from Sir Guy Carleton which was put into your hands with other Letters. The like has several times happened to me since the war respecting the letters of other Gentlemen, & I have made the like apology. I only wish that your Excellency had not discovered the mistake till you had...
This morning two American captains of Vessels who had been captured by the Enemy & carried into New York came to this Town in the Stage waggon. They shewed me their paroles and informed me that they landed at Elizabeth Town & were suffered to pass on by Captain Dayton. They arrived on the Jersey shore not in a flagg but in a private boat. As I do not know what private orders Capt. Dayton may...
