To James McHenry, 26 June 1799


New York June 26th. 1799


Inclosed is a Copy of a letter of this date to Col: Stevens—I do not whether I have mistaken or not your aim in the reference to me. But on sufficient reflection the course marked out in my letter appear’d to me the only way of getting out of the little embarrassment which has arisen with propriety—

Adieu yr. truly

James McHenry Esqr
