He agreed last Evening to Call this morning on Mess & and let them know his determinations I have waited untill after eleven oclock for his decision, but as he has not yet called <have> conclude to dispach a messenger with such intelegence as we deemed would interst you and will continue to do so from day to day if any thing of importance to your City occurs within our observation
has this moment returned to his office after having an interview with who says he does not feel authorised to proceedanyfartherin thepremises— s essays to have in the first Boat for home: rumer say to bring a frorce from . Wheather all this is mearly finess or not You can Judge— we are of the opinion all is working favourably Still efforts may be made to obtain Joseph so soon as you may by these appearances be thrown of your guard.
tak[e]s a deep interest in the matter and did not remain at home wishing to show any responsibilty but to further your interst as explained to you by the Judge
