From George Hay
Richmond. Decr. 6. 1813
You must have the goodness to excuse my failure, to answer your late letter on the Subject of Michie’s motion in the general Court. I have been entirely occupied by various concerns, professional, political, & domestic.—I have now only to inform you that the intended motion was not made, nor did any person appear as far as I could learn, with a view to make it.—
RC (DLC); endorsed by TJ as received 17 Dec. 1813 and so recorded in SJL.
