From William Savage, 20 July 1802
Kingston Jamaica July 20. 1802
My last respects was under date of 9th. June since which I have received your letter of 29th April & note the Contents. I am sorry to find my services here are not entitled to any Compensation. I will hope was the question to come before Congress they would acquiess in my Wishes & expectation on this Head.
This accompanys my Account up to 30 June Amount 366..13..5 which I have not drawn for & I trust should I come forward through the medium of Friends at Congress I should not meet any opposition from you. If my Claims are not Satisfactory I cannot expect any Attention will be paid to them.
I am well aware of the rigid economy that may be necessary in the Government but at the same time I cannot refrain from expectations when the question is properly laid before the nation in their Legislative Capacity. I have the Honour to be with respect Your Ob. Hum Servt.
