I have maturely considered the questions raised by your letter of the 21 of January with the aid of such lights, as memory or inquiry could furnish with regard to usage. The truth is that the articles are so obscurely worded as to preclude a very clear construction. The second article of the 18th section of the original code seems to me to be repealed by the first resolution of the 31 of May...
The multiplicity of my avocations joined to imperfect health has delayed the communication you desired respecting St Domingo. And what is worse it has prevented my bestowing sufficient thought to offer at present any thing worth having. No regular system of Liberty will at present suit St Domingo. The Government if independent must be military—partaking of the feodal system. A hereditary Chief...

Murray is certainly not strong enough for so immensely important a...
