Document Notes Extract in McHenry & Hodgdon to Harris, 05/18/1797. There is a second extract -- seemingly from this same document -- in Stagg to Hodgdon, 05/25/1797. Although each extract is drawn from a different part of the original document, the fact that they have the same subject and tone strongly suggests that they are drawn from a single document.
