Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Tench Coxe, 30 April [1793]

From Tench Coxe

April 30. [1793]

Mr. Coxe has the honor to inclose to the Secretary of State a letter from Mr. Stephen Kingston relative to a foreign built Ship, which is stated to belong to Mr. Kingston of Philadelphia. This Vessel is not now in the United States but in Jamaica, Honduras or on the High Seas between them. She is British built, and has now a British register, it is presumed, as she could not without one enter the Ports of Jamaica.

RC (DLC); partially dated; endorsed by TJ as received 30 Apr. 1793 and so recorded in SJL. FC (PHi: Coxe Papers).
