To Frederick Frye, 18 September 1799
New York Sepr. 18. 1799
I have received your letter of the seventh of August, but I can not think it proper, on the facts which you state, to
order direct the discharge which that is sollicited.
I am however making further enquiry into the circumstances of the case in order to an ultimate decision.
With great respect I am, Sir & &c.
