To James McHenry1
N York April 7th. 1800
I shall doublly bear in mind the Intimation of Mrs. Adams—and shall take great pleasure in fulfilling her wish if there shall be occurrences which shall render it not incompatible with the good of the Service.
On the disposition of the troops for the ensuring summer I shall ere long make you an official communication.
Secy. of War
