We are to day to go on the business of departments. & the bills being ready there will not be much difficulty in Getting them thru the treasury, being the Most Important Engages, the public attention most I mean as to the persons who are to execute it I suspect extreamly there will not be a Pensylvanian in it-- a Secy. or Minister, a Comptroller & Auditor--are the principles-- will have extensive ^ Dutys ^ and Important dutys and ought to be men of Superior Capacity in their different lines-- these first appointments will not only give a tone to the business-- but even a Complexion to the Governmt-- I hope a Good one tho I Acknowledge the difficulty of Getting men in all respects fit is Great.
