From William Livingston
Trenton, 27 Dec. 1780. Acknowledges a letter of 27 Sep. transmitting copies of the Virginia session laws of 1779 and 1780. “We have a standing Resolve in our House of Assembly for interchanging our Acts with the other States; but I believe it has not been regularly carried into Execution. The Speaker however informs me that a Set has been transmitted to the Virginia Delegates in Congress for the use of the Commonwealth.”
RC (Vi); 2 p.; addressed; endorsed: “Wm Livingston New Jersey Lr. Decr. 80. Thanking the Govr for interchange of State Documents.”
TJ’s letter to Gov. Livingston of New Jersey, 27 Sep., is missing, but see under that date for the text of a circular sent by TJ to, presumably, all the governors.
