Summary
Transmits powers of attorney and certificate of John Jay's appointment as Executor of the Estate of Peter Jay. Didn't send certified copy of Peter Jay's will because of its bulk. Hopes this will be adequate to enable John Jay to collect legacy from Peloquin executors. Is in Philadelphia on an errand from the State to Congress, the object of which he cannot commit to paper.
