I wish it was in my power to answer your enquiries as to the probable result of things at Albany, but it is not. I have done all I could to keep out of the controversy about Gov as I think I ought. I hope for the best & having had much reason to be satisfyed of the great difficulties under which party can labour with success I do not easily despond. I thank you kindly for the expression of your individual confidence & hope you will never find occasion to abandon it. We have nothing new here. I send you by this mail a report which you will find very valuable.
