§ From John Norris

14 March 1804, Salem. “I have wrote to the Honble. Mr. Pickering, requesting him to call on you respecting Captn. Ingersoll Spanish award which belong to me, & which our Consul Mr Young recd the money for and apply’d it to the use of our Government as I informed you. As there seemed to be some difference in our opinion about Interest I shall take it exceeding kind if you would be so good as to look over the Papers which I sent you with Judge Pickering and if agreable give him an Order in my favour for what you & he may think right.”1
