Transmits copies of laws of his state written before receipt of TJ’s letter of “29th. of May [i.e., March] last” and all printed copies of other laws he has been able to procure. He regrets this collection is not more complete and will furnish additional copies when obtained in future. He encloses bill of his “disbursements in this business.”
