Would you acke Colonel Moody's Letter (5477)? He says he has sent copies of the enclosures to the Governor, by whom they have not yet been forwarded to this Office.

I should not myself recommend an acknowledgement of the receipt of Coll Moody's letter. As there is nothing specially to call for it, I think, on some general grounds, that it may be better Manuscript imageto leave his correspondence unnoticed.
