A memorandum dated November, 1802, from Wythe to Judge George Hay (1765-1830), of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, inquiring after a report in the case of Wolcott, et al. v. Swan, et al.

The document formed part of the collection of Robert Gilmor, Jr. (1774-1848), a prominent American merchant of Baltimore, Maryland, and collector of art, coins, and autographs.[1] Gilmor made a notation on the reverse.
