In consequence of the application of Mr. Andw. Ellicot, I have the honor to transmit you the Official copy of the Survey of the tract of Land purchased by the State of Pennsylvania from the United States.
As I conceive this as an original paper filed of record in this Office in the Execution of an Act of the Legislature, I must ask the favor of your returning it to the Treasury as soon as you shall have caused a copy of it to be made.—I have the honor to be very respectfully1 Sir, your most obedt Servant,
RC (DLC); in clerk’s hand except for signature and two words in complimentary close (see note 1); endorsed by TJ as received 6 Mch. 1792 and so recorded in SJL.
