My last to your Excellency was the 5th Instant by Post within the present enclosures your Excellency will receive several copies of the Pennsylvania Gazette, in which is contained an Act of Congress for publishing such parts of the treaty of Paris, of the 6th Febry as Congress have judged necessary for public information and for government in particular cases.
The Ratification shall be transmitted, when the Secretary enables me, but his office at present is a scene of hard labor, and some articles unavoidably delayed. I have the honor to be Sir, your Excellency's ob. humble Servt.
I have sent on to Gov. Henry Copy of a letter from a man of character, containing news of the day very important if true, and have requested that gentleman to pass it on to your Excellency.
