From John Gwinn
Annapolis [Md.], March 14th 1794
The division made by Hezh Veach, as referred to in the Deed to you from Colo. Mercer & others, was not transmitted to me for enrolment, owing, I imagine, to its having been omitted by Doct. Steuart, with whom the Deed was left.1
I shall take the liberty to inform the Doctor of its being referred to in the Deed, and of your wish to have it enrolled; and shou’d he furnish me with it, it shall be forwarded to you immediately after it is enrolled.2 I am, Sir, With great respect, your very Humble Servant
