The Commission forwarded you a few days past, is expressive of the duties required of the Commissioners of this State, but as it may be proper for you to have a full information on the business as I am able to give, these papers are forwarded to you, with a request you will be pleased to have copies made and transmitted to Mr. Nash and Mr. Williamson as soon as practicable. I would not give you this trouble but your brother, Col.
