Richmond. August 14 1807
There was no mail this morning beyond Petersburg. I have therefore again to regret that I can give you no information from Norfolk. Should I receive any letters of importance tomorrow morning, I will send them by express to overtake the Fredericksburg mail, which generally leaves this place before the arrival of the Norfolk mail—
I am with the highest respect Sir yr. Ob. St.
