Cahawba 17th Nov. 1821

Dear Sirs
	You will see by the above that our treasury is
empty, and that we are likely to go home unrewarded for
our valuable labour  --we have as yet however earned
but little.  The committees have not yet reported.  The
most important measures in contemplation are the
apportionment, the State Bank Charter which is now before
the House tho not acted upon—the title of the Seminary 
lands & the established of a University in this state &
the treasurers(?) Bill, which has not yet been reported.
	We have not received anything from you relative
to the School Section near Florence, which was intimated
before I left home, & if sent on, I fear will come to hand 
too late to be acted on this session.
	The health of this place has much improved since
I arrived here, and the members generally at this time
are well.			Respectfully yours
				Jno. Craig
