Summary
Anxiety over the inadequate state of the defenses of New York City and Harbor have resulted in measures by a committee appointed to deal with the matter. However, since this is of importance to the state as a whole, they request that John Jay convene a special session of the state Legislature as soon as possible. Also contains a fragment of John Jay's reply to Matthew Clarkson, Chairman of the Committee (14 June 1798, N: 3160).
