To Samuel Eddins
N. York Feby. 19th. 1800
Serjeant Hunter,1 the person whom you sent to attend my office as orderly, has this morning left it without permission—leaving a note that he was compelled by indisposition to repair to Fort Jay. This conduct is irregular and deserves reprehension. You will enquire into this affair and communicate to me the State of it.
