Having taken a Copy right of a pamplet herein inclosed i was directed by Mr Caldwell the Clerk of the Circuit Court of the united States meeting in Phidelphia to send a copy of the same to the Secretary of the united States as the law requir’ed it. I thought the same respect ought to be shew’ed to the president I therefore take the freedom to trouble you to accept of a copy of pricous matter which if a man enter into the light or spirit of it will make him easy & happy in life & in death.
With high Consideration i am your fellow Cityzen & humble servant
