To Aaron Ogden, 18 March 1799
New York March 18. 1799
As from the nature of the cases to be tried it is desireable to have a court strong in discernment—I wish Captain Williamson at all events to be a member. You will please to notify him accordingly.
With great consideration and esteem I am Sir Yr obed Servt.
