Washington July 27th. 1816.
The disagreeable cause of my late resignation is now removed, and I hope that it has not been acted upon finally and conclusively. If however it has been accepted may I ask the favor to be indulged with a reappointment as soon as may be convenient. I have the honor to be with the highest respect Your Obt. Servt.
William S. Radcliff.
