United States

1789. April

Press copies of my public accounts to be left in France in case any accident of shipwreck happens to the vessel in which I go to America.

MS (DLC); in TJ’s hand. This may have been a directive to Short or TJ’s reminder to himself. On TJ’s concern for the safety of his public accounts, see note to TJ to Trumbull, 25 Nov. 1789.
