Notes on a Conversation with
Benjamin Rush

[27 Mch. 1800 or after]

Dr. Rush tells me that within a few days he has heard a member of Congress lament our separation from Gr. Brit. & express his sincere wishes that we were again dependant on her.

MS (DLC: TJ Papers, 108:18559); entirely in TJ’s hand; on same sheet as the preceding document, and is the final notation on that page.

On 24 Feb. 1800 TJ received a letter of unspecified date from Rush that is recorded in SJL but has not been found.
