Th: Jefferson returns thanks to mr Gilpin for the pamphlet he has been so kind as to send him. no one wishes more ardently that a dissipation of our foreign difficulties might enable Congress, by a liberation of our revenues, to enter systematically on the work of canals & render our country the garden which nature has destined it to be. he salutes mr Gilpin with respect
