Washington July 21 1806
I enclose the copy of the letter which was written to the Register of the land office at Vincennes respecting the roads in Indiana. The Register of Chilicothe has been authorised to open the road from the Sciota to the former Indian boundary line. It is already open from four points on the Ohio (Marietta, Grave Creek, Wheeling and Steubenville) to the Sciota. As it is necessary to connect the two roads right from the Ohio to the old indian boundary line, and from sd. line to the Mississippi, I wish nothing to be decided until the answer of the Vincennes register shall have been received; nor until the point on the indian line which the road from Sciota will strike shall have been ascertained. As soon as the information shall have been received it will be communicated.
With respectful attachment Your obedt. Servt.
