John Selman, Commr on Symme’s land Claims (permanent) Augt. Note—Thomas Munroes Commn is dated June 2d. 1802 (permanent).
RC (DLC); undated; in a clerk’s hand, with last three entries in Daniel Brent’s hand; with two emendations, probably by TJ (see notes below); endorsed by TJ as received from the State Department on 18 Oct. and “Commissions issued 1802 July 28.—Oct. 11.”
TJ probably requested the State Department to provide him with a list of the commissions issued while he was away at Monticello. He recorded neither the request nor the receipt of this list in SJL.
TJ probably used this list to aid in compiling his chronological list of appointments (see Appendix i). One discrepancy with that list is TJ’s entry of JOSEPH WOOD at 1 Aug., not the 26th as above.
