From Edmund Randolph
Feby 14. 1795.
E. Randolph has the honor of informing the President, that after every effort no person has appeared so proper for the temporary comptrollership as Major Lenox; and he will accept, without further expectations. Mr Wolcott and E. Randolph concur in thinking him unexceptionable; and if the President should approve, the business of the office, which is now stagnated, may immediately proceed.1
