Description
Has received his letter of the 23d; a commission has been made out for Daniel Smith as judge of the western district of Virginia; incloses letters from Governor Troup of Georgia concerning his proposed survey of the Creek Indian lands; the letters of July 26th and Aug. 7th have been published in the newspapers; Barbour should write an acknowledgement, without any discussion tending to irritate; had prepared a draft of such a letter, but it must be modified, since Troup has abandoned the survey until Congress and the Legislature of Georgia can dispose of the subject; this has relieved his mind; movements of Gen. Lafayette; Henry Clay has returned with his family; Mr. Rush is occupied in his duties of the treasury.
