Abstract
Was pleased to receive Jay's friendly and unceremonious letter. His pen was directed "by the rapid whirl of Imagination." Yet caution must be exercised lest imagination rule reason. When he asked about affairs at the office, he did not wish a report on the way the business progressed, for he knew Jay was to be depended upon. Rather he wished to know w hether the office had suffered a decrease in business because of his absence. The trial of persons at Albany for an attack on the sheriff will keep him for quite a while.
