From Rufus King

New york Dec 9. 1803

Dr. Sir

Herewith I enclose the Letter of the Comee. of the Senate,1 together with my answer to yr’s of the 4.2 Should it still be thought inexpedient to ratify the Convn. without farther Explanation I should think there would be no objection on the part of G. Br before the delivery of the Ratifications, to exchange with Mr Monroe a dec[larati]on that the Conn. was concluded without Reference to the treaty with France or any Rights of the U S under it. Yrs &c
