To Caleb Swan, 10 April 1800
NY. April 10th. 1800
I have received your two letters of the twenty eighth and thirty first of March.
Enclosed are the warrants you sent me which you will find signed.
I did not advert to the particular circumstances of the case of Lieutenant Smith when I wrote to you respecting it—Upon the whole, however, I am glad you have settled with him, as he has now no excuse for not joining his regiment.
