HON. WILLIAM BLOUNT TO WM. CONSTABLE, ESQ.
(From Executive Letter Book.)
New York, July 10th, 1787.
You can be no stranger to the Various Reports and conjectures that are formed and circulated respecting the non-acceptance or nonpayment of some of Mr. Morris’ Bills, drawn on your Partner Mr. Rucker, and that the further these reports travel from Mr. Morris and yourself the distant they will be from Truth, hence by the time they reach North Carolina he will be represented as Bankrupt;

and as it will be of consequence to the feeling of my Colleague and myself that the truth should be told in preference, I submit it to you whether it could not be more beneficial to you if you would send me a Copy of the Circular Letter you showed me this morning to the end that I may forward it to the Governor.
I am yours, &c.,
