Annapolis, January 1799 Dear Sir, The Court de Moelien's observations on the opposite side were transmitted to you in my letter dated early in last month. Not having been favored with your answer, I take the liberty of transmitting a copy of his sentiments. The Count is anxiously waiting your determination. To what I have said in his favor I can add nothing. He is in my opinion a man of strict honor and integrity, and as such may be confided in. He is also, as far as I am able to judge a man of [...] good sense. Wishing you many happy new years gone with sentiment of great regard and respect Dear Sir, Your most hum. Ser. Ch. Caroll of Carrollton
