Baltimore c. March 10 1806
I have had the honor to receive your Letter of the 8 Instant, and am extremely sorry that Capt. Clements “had not delivred the Box agreeably” to his receipt,
I have always considered him as a carefull man, and I hope, the Box is still safe, and will be delivered on his arrival at Georgetown & Alexandria, for which Districts it appears he cleared out on the 8 Inst.
I suppose he did not go to Georgetown the last trip, and thus he must have Lodged the Box with some Freind at Alixandria until his return.
I have the honor to be with great respect Sir Your Most Obed. Servant
