Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from John Carey, 26 March 1793

From John Carey

March, 26: 1793.


I have the honor of submitting to your inspection the enclosed draught of an index to the laws—mortified, at the same time, to reflect, that, notwithstanding my earnest wishes and efforts to render it complete and satisfactory, it is yet so very far from being adequate to the liberal reward offered for it. I can therefore only add, that, to the utmost of my power, I am ready to make whatever alterations you may please to direct, either in the plan or the execution; and have the honor to be, with perfect respect, Sir, Your most obliged, humble servant,

John Carey

RC (DLC); at foot of text: “The honble. the Secretary of State”; endorsed by TJ as received 26 Mch. 1793 and so recorded in SJL. Enclosure not found.
