From John Nicholson
[Philadelphia], “Compt Genls Office,” 4. Aug. 1791. Gen. William Thompson, some time before he died at end of 1781, sent his resignation to Congress. Some claims on the public make it desirable to see that letter. He thus requests permission to take a copy of it or that one be sent him, whichever is more agreeable to TJ.
