From James McHenry

Philadelphia 5 Jany 1799

Inclosed is a copy of my report which I received this morning from the press. You will perceive, that I have used the matter you furnished me with pretty freely, and added several subjects which I hope will meet your approbation as well as the arrangment and general stile of the report.1

I am still extremely busy and can see no end to my labours. Yours affectionately and sincerely

James McHenry
