Gentlemen:

The Senate have considered the letter that you were pleased to address to the Senate and the House of Representatives, on the 6th instant, and they entertain a proper sense of the respect shown to the general government of the United States, by providing so commodious a building as the commissioners of the city and county of Philadelphia have appropriated for the accommodation of the Representatives of the Union, during their residence in this city.

I have the honor to be, / Your most humble servant,

John Adams,

Vice President of the United States,

and President of the Senate.
