May 1. 1802.
You will be pleased to cause a warrant to be issued in favor of John Davidson for four hundred and fifty three dollars and nine cents, to be paid out of the fund for defraying the expenses incident to the intercourse with the Mediterranean powers, he being the holder of a bill of Exchange for that sum, drawn upon me by James Leander Cathcart, the drawer to be charged with the same on the books of the Treasury. I have the honor &ca.
