Detroit, Sept. 4. 1806.
Mr. Wagner’s letter of the 9. of august I had the pleasure to receive. The mail to Pittsburgh is very large, and I believe no inconvenience would ⟨r⟩esult from the transmission of the package for me by mail.
I have to acknowledge the reception of the Acts of Congress, for which I am very grateful.
I am very sorry our own laws are not here.
Will Mr Wagner do me the honor to favor me with a line on this subject?
Nothing can ex⟨ceed⟩ the tranquility, spirit⟨s,⟩ and public satisfac⟨tion⟩ of this country. My sincere respec⟨ts⟩ await the Secretary of State.
