United States, February 7, 1800.
Gentlemen of the House of Representatives:
In consequence of your request to me, conveyed in your resolution of the 4th of this month, I directed the Secretary of State to lay before me copies of the papers intended. These copies, together with his report, I now transmit to the House of Representatives, for the consideration of the members.
