I had the honor to receive your Excellency's Letter of the 23d. July, to the Commissioners for Indian affairs, last Post. The mode of converting your paper Currency into hard money the Commissioners leave to your Excellency altogether. They will want the money lodged in this city in the hands of Gervais and Owen, No. 14 Trade Street, and I was directed to draw bills accordingly, but
I am glad Colonel William Blount is appointed on the part of your State, we shall endeavor to make his situation as agreeable as possible. The executive of Virginia have honored our draughts for money and informed us that they do not think it necessary to appoint any person on the part of that State to be present at the Treaties.
