Acknowledges receipt of letter of Jan. 23 informing him of his reappointment as delegate to Congress; regrets to learn of the illness of the President of New Hampshire; hears that the Legislature have passed the impost act; New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, and Virginia have done the same; Connecticut is in too great a pet with the commutation to comply at present; Rhode Island will be slow; Congress will probably adjourn in April; a committee of the States may possibly be left sitting, in which case Jonathan Blanchard will remain for New Hampshire.
