Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from James Maury, 1 December 1792

From James Maury

Liverpool, 1 Dec. 1792. He annexes a copy of his last letter; the enclosed price current shows “the amazing Fall of Stocks.” This port will probably be opened to foreign wheat and flour on or before the next quarter day in February. He strongly recommends that American mariners in vessels bound for British ports be given “regular Documents of their Citizenship.”
