To Thomas Jefferson from Robert Smith, 21 February 1809

Feb. 21. 1809

Sir,

As the order mentioned in the enclosed letter may eventually produce a state of War between the U. States and G. Britain, I have to request from you a special instruction as to the answer proper to be sent to Captain Porter—

Respectfully

Rt Smith
