Washington Mar. 2. 09
I have just received the inclosed with a request that I would lay it before both Houses of Congress. but I have never presumed to place my self between the Legislative Houses & those who have a constitutional right to address them directly. I take the liberty therefore of inclosing the paper to you, that you may do therein what in your judgment shall best comport with expediency and propriety—
I pray you to be assured of my high consideration.
