Mr. CHARLTON, Sir-Having learned that a certain JOHN H. M'INTOSH, (lately Director General of certain little matters in East-Florida) had in a publication in your paper, declared that BENJAMIN SHEROD of your county was not his Agent, whereby the said M'INTOSH has endeavoured to evade the final payment of a note which I hold on Mr. SHERROD.-For elucidation of that matter, I beg you with this, to give publication in your paper, to the following letter received by me from Capt. SHERROD, as I am fully persuaded a disinterested public will place at once, in proper point of view, the designs of M'INTOSH, especially when it is considered from Capt. SHERROD's familiarity with accounts, settlements, vouchers, &c. &c. how difficult a task it might be for any person, fraudulently and surreptitiously, to obtain a settlement with him, wherein he himself became bound. Upon an examination of Mr. SHERROD's letter here annexed, it will be for him, not me, to say, whether he was or was not the agent of M'INTOSH.

BENJ. SHERROD to CHS. A. HILL.
Washington, April 1st 1814
Dr. Sir, After presenting my compliments to you, must inform you, that Mr. J. H. M'INTOSH has appointed myself his agent. Consequently, the crop that is raised under your superintendance is to be placed in my possession for disposition; consequently all expenses you incur during the year, on account of the plantation under your management, I will become responsible for. I am with esteem, BENJ. SHERROD.
I will only add, that this letter was backed to be handed me by the favor of Mr. M'INTOSH and was delivered to me in the presence of the parties, and also Mr. NATHANIEL WILKINSON.
As it is positively avowed, in the publication above, alluded to, that the account for which Capt. SHERROD gave me his note, (for 660 dollars 53 cents) is most fraudulent, for the satisfaction of my friends, it may be necessary to obsever, that the purchase of four horses, of sixty dollars value of hogs, of bacon, or beef, and salt for about twenty grown negroes, exclusive of several children, and my own stipulated wages, compose the most prominent of articles of that account, besides casual expenses of a plantation, such as blacksmiths work, iron, midwifes, fees, and cash advanced for the portage of a number of negroes down the Oconee to M'INTOSH's plantation, pursuant to his requisition. CHARLES A. HILL. Laurens county, March 13, 1815.
