Other writing including ciphers are on verso. In part, "I this moment met with a vessel bout to Alexa by whereon I send you the Chares (9) I have not time to send you anything else..." Daniel Carroll, a signer of the Articles of Confederation and the Constitution, was appointed by President Washington in 1791 as one of the commissioners to locate the District of Columbia and the Federal City and served until 1795. His Maryland farm was the site of the present city of Washington, D.C. There is show-through from the writing on both sides with light stains. A small slit in the center of the letter is from the seal tear on verso. Daniel Carroll's autograph is scarce in any form. This ALS is in fine condition.
