Discusses several problems with the enterprise, being at odds with government agents, and the various suggestions he made. Submits his ideas for Holmes to make use of as he sees fit and asks they be kept confidential. Fears becoming a scapegoat. Holmes had been appointed a commissioner to divide the islands of Passamaquoddy Bay between the United States and Great Britain. Turner was a Massachusetts state politician. Possibly a copy made by Samuel C. Crafts (see GLC05634.04).
