Baltimore. March 13th. 1806.
I have had the Honor to receive, through Mr. Wagner, a confidential Explanation of your Views on the Subject of a contingent special Mission to the Court of London, and the Nomination of a Successor to Mr. Munroe, who, it is understood, desires to return to America.—
Altho I have mentioned to Mr. Wagner my Impressions with relation to each of these Subjects, it has occurred to me to be proper that I should make them known to you in the Form of a direct written Communication.—I beg leave, accordingly, to say that this additional proof of your Confidence is in the highest Degree grateful to me, and that I shall be prepared to accept the Appointments, suggested by Mr. Wagner, whensoever it shall be thought fit to call upon me to do so.—
My professional Engagements are numerous; but will, notwithstanding admit of my Departure from the United States at a very short Warning.—My own private Affairs will require very little Arrangement.—
I have the Honor to be With the highest Respect and Consideration Your Most Obt. Hble Servant
