I have to acknowledge the receipt of your letter, dated the 5th of this month, on the subject of a petition, presented to the Legislature, by the Rivanna Company—If that subject should come before the Senate, I will take pleasure, in investigating the facts, and in presenting them to the other members of our house, in their true character—
RC (MHi); endorsed by TJ as received 13 Jan. 1813 and so recorded in SJL.
