I have the honor to send you a very interesting report made in March last by a Comme. of the British Privy Council upon the subject of their corn trade.

The paragraph in page 22, marked with an index favors exceedingly the...

Mr. Matthew Carey of Philadelphia wishes for the honor of conversing with you on the republication of the several treaties of the United States. Tho he cannot expect to insert them in his Museum by your Authority , he justly conceives it of great importance that they be strictly true copies. I proposed to have done myself the honor of waiting upon you with him to ask for him the favor of such...
Since I had the honor of taking leave of you in New York I have made some Enquiries upon the subject of the fisheries, but from their inattention and want of facility in committing their knowledge to paper even persons concerned in the prosperity of this branch of commerce have yielded little Information. I have however collected from various sources some facts, that may assist to elucidate...
I have the honor to inclose you a return of the piscatory articles exported from the United States in one year, one month, and ten days, excepting fourteen quarterly returns from twelve ports which have not yet been received. Among these are Boston, Newyork Charleston and five small ports of Massachusetts and Main. From the irregular Manner in which the first returns were made it was...
Mr. Coxe has the honor to enclose to Mr. Jefferson a letter containing some further information concerning the fisheries: also the table of prices refer’d to in his notes, and a little estimate of the profits of the cod fishery. Mr. Anthony was bred to the Sea out of Rhode Island, is a man of judgment and probity, and is now a partner of one of the principal houses in Philadelphia, who do half...
I had the honor to receive this afternoon your note relative to the value of the transportation of the whole produce of the United States to foreign markets. By this I understand the amount of the freight money that would be paid by the owners of our produce to the owners of the vessels in which they are laden, if they were always different persons. In the very imperfect state of the documents...

Mr. Coxe will not fail to send the Return of Exports...
I have this moment the honor of your note with the Return of exports which is for about 13. Months and 20 days. The odd time is from about 10th. Augt. to 30th. Septr. when little Tobacco, rice, or grain is at market. When I conjectured the amount of our exports yesterday it was principally founded on an opinion that our imports came nearly to that sum, which was the result of a statement made...
A large mail was received yesterday at the Treasury office in which was contained the enclosed letter. Presuming upon the care of the postmaster I did not look at the Superscription of the letter with much attention, and opened it as if to the Secretary of the Treasury. On reaching the 3d. or 4th. line, which has relation to a subject unconnected with the business of this department I was led...
