From Gideon Granger

General Post office June 24th. 1811

Dear Sir

A few days past I rec’d your note acknowledgeing the receipt of my late list of Post offices, which was transmitted without my knowledge and in consequence of my suggesting a determination to furnish you, as I now do, by the volume herewith transmitted, a complete view of the present state of this Department.

Ever your friend

G Granger
