My Dear Sir

Yours from Baltimore came to hand Yesterday & I Immediately called on
Mr Morris – who told me that he was determined not to abate an iota (was
his expression) of what he had ask’d you. This precluded me from saying
a word to him on the Subject.1

I do not wonder at the Suspicions you mention – the same persons who
entertain them, woud likewise say that it was a reflection occasiond by
the same interested views, if they were told, that the offering of
Annapolis instead of the other place, woud give Kingston a better
chance of Succeeding.2

I shall leave this on next Saturday or Sunday & return by the E.
Shore – on acct of my wrist which is not yet in a condition to bear
rough roads. I must make use of expedients, which are disagreeable to
get out of Town. I have been I think cruelly treated. My love and
compts. as proper &

am my Dr Sr., Your Most assured & aff Hble
sr.

Danl. Carroll
