Richmond June 29th. 1807
My Son, John, conceiving it to be indispensibly necessary that he should attend to his Family, & Business, during the Adjournment of the Court to call the Venire from Wood and the adjacent Counties, he proposes to make a short Halt at the federal City, to pay his Respects to you, & to Mr Maddison; & to communicate certain Matters to you; or to the Attorney General, which I think, as he does, ought to be known to you both, & to the Secretary of the Treasury, which he, my Son, will undertake to develope, & to serve the necessary Subpoenas if cloathed with the necessary Powers from the Attorney General & the Marshal—
I am happy in this Opportunity of making him known to you, with my Assurances of our Respects & perfect Attachments
