ALS signed “Ja's Monroe,” one page, 7.75 x 9.5, March 6, 1792. Letter to "The honble Mr. Giles," in full: "I had appropriated in my private arrangements for payment of the sum due you, the amount, out of what the State owed me for my labours in the revision of the laws; I expected to have applied it before we came last fall, but owing to some disagreement between us on some points the report was not made to the Assembly. The other gent'n are now sitting on the business, and as soon as it shall be completed the money will be at our command. From this fund it wo'd be perfectly convenient to make the payment. If this sho'd not take place before the adjournment I shall endeavor to furnish as great a part of the demand, from my other resources as possible. The amount will entirely depend upon your own wishes, it being mine to accommodate my own to yours. You will be so kind to mention whether you will require it untill about the time of adjournment." Addressed on the integral leaf in Monroe's hand. In fine condition, with an old reinforcement strip along the left edge, and repaired seal-related paper loss to the integral address leaf.
