To James McHenry, 2 October 1799
New York October 2nd. 99
I have a letter for Lieut Seymoore Rannix of Moorefield, and would thank you to inform me where the place is. The letter was sent to Connecticut but the Postmaster of Hartford has returned it saying that he knows of no such place in the state.
With great respect I am, Sir
