Henry Lee to George Mason (September 14, 1792)

Richmond September 14th 1792.
SIR
I beg leave to remind you of the promise you was pleased to make through you son mr. Thomas Mason in consequence of my letter to you of the 20th of March.
I am induced to bring this matter to your recollection at present because the indiana Company have absolutely sued the Commonwealth on the subject of their pretended claim in the supreme court of the United States.
It may be important therefore for me to be possessed of every information touching this matter without delay and I beg leave to repeat to you my hope that you will be so good as to furnish me in the fullest manner with your intelligence so soon as your leisure and convenience may permit. I have the honor &c.
HENRY LEE
