17 July 1806
Mr. Laselles may be intitled to notice for his services as by himself related, but he is mistaken in the fact relative to Genl. Waynes return, the Genl. did return to Philadelphia after the Treaty of Greenville and afterwards joined the western Army and was at Detroit where he received an order to attend a Court of enquiry at Pittsburg, and died on his way at Presqu Isle. The Genl of course had an opportunity of stating to the President of the U.S. the services of Laselles. I know of no agency that could be offered him at present. Yours.
