Description
Acknowledges receipt of their letter of 27th inst.; [William] Tilghman advises that arbitration begin at once, as the Supreme Court ends its session this week, and he will then have leisure for the business; Tilghman and [William] Lewis seem to think their interference should be confined to giving legal opinions on cases that may arise during the investigation; would like to have the arbitrators meet about April 7; Mr. [James?] McHenry's time will be even more occupied as the session of Congress approaches, especially if it should consider fortifications, etc.; should they consent to this arrangement he wishes to be notified, so that he may put the papers in order.
