I did not receive the letter you did me the honor to address of the 25th ult:, until it was too late, to acknowledge its receipt, by the return of the post who brought it.

On the 3d Instant I was favored with Your Excellency’s letter of the 30th ult. I have for ten days Successively deferred writing In hopes that I should have been able At last to have advised you that public business was closely attended to In this quarter, and that we had adopted Measures to disencumber us from that Variety of embarrasment we experience, but alas! we have made little or no...
Yesterday I had the happiness of Your Excellencys favor of the 18th Instant. I find by enquiry at the Office that my first letter was not forwarded by the Conveyance I Intended It should but was sent by a subsequent one, It is therefore probably by this time reached You.
