Dep State 9 Jany. 1806.
J. Wagner’s best respects to the President.
A copy of Mr. Lear’s instructions for making peace with Tripoli, and of the only letter (dated 5 July last) in which he mentions the negotiation and its consequences, accompanied the treaty to the Senate. A letter, of a date subsequent to the above, has been received from Mr. Lear, but it does not relate to affairs with Tripoli.
