Letter : Lee (Richard Henry). New York, June 17, 1785. To- Congress has just finished an ordinance for surveying and selling that part of the land north-west of the Ohio that has been purchased lately of the Indians; this and more to be acquired later will be devoted to payment of the domestic debt; the foreign debt will not be oppressive then ; an American coinage, the regulation of the post office, and other important affairs are now before Congress; they hope for peace with the Barbary states; he inclines to think however that commercial finesse has been more operative than the enmity of those people to distress American com

Letter : Lee (Richard Henry). Baltimore, Feb. 19, 1777. To John Page, Williamsburg, Va. Thanks him for his last letter ; if their large gallies were manned, gunned, and fitted, the navigation of the bay would receive no interruption ; wishes Virginia and Maryland would act jointly in the matter; advantages of the gallies ; events of war are at a standstill until the new army assembles ; the horses of the enemy are nearly all dead for want of forage; it is disgraceful to Americans that 6000 men determined upon their ruin should winter in their country; urges Page to press forward their quota ; a war in Europe is not far off ; they expect news soon upon the return of the vessel that carried Dr. Franklin to France ; Page's brother and sister were inoculated three days ago ; Congress is to return to Philadelphia on Wednesday next ; a postscript adds that seamen put ashore by Com. Hotham report that the ships have great fear of our gallies. A.L.S. 2 pp. and i leaf with address. Fo. EM. 3767
