Mr. Bishop will shew you an affidavit against Buel, which he wishes to ^will^ move by way of Resolutions this morning. It charges Buel with having loaned his types knowingly & willfully to counterfeit Army Bills. That Buel committed this base & infamous crime is certain. And if the Senate, with the record of it on their Journals, can vote for his appointment—Amen!
P.S. Cantine is here. I have no claims upon either of you, but if you chuse to <shove> me, between you, it can be done. I should be sorry, however, for you to injure yourself on my account. I feel grateful—very grateful—for what you have done.
