Tuesday morning [10? Feb. 1784]
Mr. De Marbois presents his compliments to Mr. Jefferson and begs the favor of a communication of the Constitutions of the thirteen States if Mr. Jefferson has got them.
RC (DLC: PCC, No. 30). TJ’s draft of the Virginia deed of cession is on the verso of Marbois’ letter. TJ must, therefore, have received this letter sometime before 13 Feb. It may have been written on Tuesday, 10 Feb. 1784; Marbois carried letters to Philadelphia for TJ on 18 Feb. (see TJ to Hopkinson, 18 Feb. 1784; see also Virginia Cession, &c., under 1 Mch. 1784, Document I, notes).
