§ From Robert Williams

20 August 1803, North Carolina. Received JM’s letter of 16 July [not found] enclosing a commission to act as a commissioner in the Mississippi Territory, which he accepts. “A violent fever for 3 weeks past which I have had, pervented an earlier answer—& I am now, scarcely able to set up to write this.”
