Monroe will be here on Sunday; he will bring us no new information, as far as can be judged from his letter, but on the subject of the Proclamation. should the message wait for him? I will keep it back till half after 10. aclock for your opinion either written or verbal. Affte. salutns.
I have just recieved your note, & am clearly for the exception. but come here before half after 10. & let us be together before the message goes out of our hands.
