Thomas Law to Thomas Jefferson, 1 October 1813

From Thomas Law

Wa[shing]ton Octor [1]st 1813.

Dr sir

Enclosed I submit to your perusal, what I trust will be deem’d worth the trouble—If after a Year, these Treasury notes (become due), were recd as Cash in paymt of Subsn to the loan, it would give them full credit & enable Govt to issue more—The loan would also be obtain’d on more advantageous terms, as these note holders would encrease the number of competitors for the loan—

I remain With esteem Yrs unfeignedly

T Law—
