To Thomas Jefferson from George Washington, 6 March 1791

From George Washington

Sunday 6th. Mar: 1791

The P. would thank Mr. Jefferson for placing all, or such of the enclosed Papers (after he has perused them) in the hands of the Attorney General as he shall deem necessary for the purpose of drawing the several conveyances of the ceded Lands, or the form of one.

For the former, it is conceived farther information than the enclosures contain, is wanting.—For the latter, the agreement, and perhaps the Plat to which it refers, is all that is necessary; but the plat referred to, does not apply to the subsequent purchases.

Dft (DLC: Washington Papers); docketed by Washington. FC (DLC: Washington Papers). Not recorded in SJL or SJPL.
