In your message to both Houses of Congress on the 5 of December 1793, you inform them that “the vexations and spoliations, understood to have been committed on our vessels and commerce, by the Cruisers and Officers of some of the belligerent powers appeared to require attention”: that “the proofs of these, however, not having been brought forward, the description of Citizens, supposed to have...
When Mr Drayton of Charleston was here last Summer he told me that the true nankeen Cotton was in So. Carolina. It appeared to me to be a valuable acquisition, and I suggested to him the Expediency of planting it always at so great a Distance from other Cotton, as to avoid the Influence which many plants of the same kind, tho’ of different Species have on each other, when very contiguous....
I made the informal communication to Mr Jaudenes. He expressed himself to be satisfied with the exertions of the general government; tho’ he questioned, whether the governor of Kentucky has done, what he was commanded by the President to do.

The enclosed letter was to have been delivered by me, to you, last June; but from an expectation founded on my own feelings, I supposed that the commissioners for the public buildings in the City of Washington would certainly in the course of the summer go into an enquiry respecting the conduct of Mr Dermott; which was fully stated to them in several reports, particularly one bearing date June...
With this you will receive a copper-plate map of the territory of Columbia, which I find requires much larger paper than can be met with in this country, except amongst drafts-men who have imported it for their own use. It would therefore be necessary if the maps are intended for sale, to have some paper manufactured for that purpose of a proper size. I am in hopes the map will be found...
