From Thomas Jefferson to United States Congress, 19 February 1807

Feb. 19. 1807.

To the Senate & House of Representatives of the United States

I transmit to Congress a letter from our Ministers Plenipotentiary at London, informing us that they have agreed with the British Commissioners to conclude a treaty on all the points which had formed the object of their negociation, & on terms which they trusted we would approve.

Also a letter from our Minister Plenipotentiary at Paris, covering one to him from the Minister of Marine of that government, assuring him that the Imperial decree lately passed was not to affect our commerce, which would still be governed by the rules of the treaty established between the two countries.

Also a letter from Cowles Mead, Secretary of the Missisipi territory, acting as Governor, informing us that Aaron Burr had surrendered himself to the civil authority of that territory.
