To Samuel Eddins, 1 March 1800
February 28. March 1st. 1800
I have received your letter of yesterday and from the reasons stated therein extend your furlough until the first of May next. I did not on Captain Stille’s communication respecting the release of Van’erp recollect our conversation & my directions to you on the subject You will therefore inform Captain Still that Van’erp’s release was perfectly correct
with true consideration &c
