St. Louis 18th July 1807
Some time about the commencement of the last Session of Congress, I took the liberty of inclosing to you a number of Original Papers—grants for lands.—Accompanied with a Petition for the redress of grievances therein stated, and proved by the Documents inclosed. I have never received the smallest notice whether my papers have been received, or, if so, whether I may Shortly expect their return.—
These papers I am informed are of great consequence to me as evidence before the Board of Commissioners. It would give me great pleasure therefore to know if they have been duly, received; and when I may expect to receive them. Would you be pleased to cause a line to be written to me on this Subject;—And (if the papers are no longer necessary at Washington) to inclose them to me by mail.
I have the honor to be with great respect & Esteem
Your Excellency’s Mmost Humble Servant
