[Sam Huntington, President, Philadelphia to His Excy Govr Lee]

Sir You will receive herewith enclosed an Act of Congress of
the 7th Instant, recommending to the State of Maryland to grant
Permission to such Agent as the Minister of France shall appoint
to purchase in that state any Quantity of Flour not exceeding three
thousand Barrels and ship the same to such of the Spanish Colonies
in the West Indies as he may direct.
This recommendation is founded on the special request of his
Catholic Majesty through the Minister of France to supply the
Spanish Armament lately arrived in the West Indies
The Minister of France I have no Doubt from his Prudence and
good Intentions to serve these States will direct the Purchase in
such Manner as shall be most agreeable to you, and best prevent any
ill Consequences arising therefrom.
There is no room to doubt from the Nature of the Case, this re-
quest will be complied with if the Flour can be spared from the State
of Maryland.
