From Edmund Randolph1
[Philadelphia, June 17, 1794]
E. Randolph has the honor of inclosing to the Secretary of the Treasury all the papers, which General Knox admits himself to possess, respecting the Ship William. E. R. intreats Colo. Hamilton to forward his opinion, together with the other papers; as he is hourly invaded by those, who are interested for the French Captors.
