a duplicate of a Letter to you of the 25th. of the same month.
Seven weeks having elapsed without an answer induces me to write you again fearful that some accident has taken place which has prevented your receiving those Letters.
If the Deputy Quarter Master General’s appointment is not to be obtained, Let me know what or if any appointment on the Staff worth my acceptance is to be had. such as Inspector. Muster Master—Commissary
I write fully persuaded that you will give me an answer in which case I may be determined how to act respecting any appointment in the Military line—
I am Dear Sir with much esteem Your most Obedient humble Servant
