LS, one page, 7.75 x 10, May 11, 1828. Written from Washington, a letter to General John W. Cuningham, in full: “I need not inform you that I called upon the Postmaster General—agreeably to the request contained in your letter & read that part of it to him which related to the establishment of stages upon the route between Baltimore & Philadelphia by Post Deposit. He appeared to be still friendly to the object. Your proposals have no doubt 'ere this reached him. We have nothing now here at present. The Tariff still occupies the attention of the Senate. They were engaged upon it last night until 8 o‘clock & the night before last until Ten. We expect it in our House about Wednesday. As soon as it shall be finally disposed of, I will leave this City for Lancaster. Our Supreme Court will commence its session in Lancaster tomorrow. Congress have resolved to adjourn on the 26 Instant. The prospects of Jackson still continue to brighten. The news from the State of New York still continues favorable. I should be glad to hear from you, through the summer." In fine condition.
