Saturday Evening 20 December 1806
T Munroe presents his best respects to the President.
He has the honor to send enclosed a rough Sketch of the Account to be laid before Congress. If approved by the President in its present form TM will make a fair Copy of it tomorrow—. In case the President wishes any alterations, and he should not find it convenient to direct them in writing, TM will wait on him to receive his verbal instructions at any moment he may require—TM also sends his rough memdm from which he made out the Sketch. This memdm or rather the first column in it is the Amt of the “Acct” referred to in the lines written with a pencil at the top of the Sketch. These lines can be stricken out, or retained and An Acct thereof rendered with that of the subsequent expenses, as the President may be pleased to direct—. T.M. supposed the Acct of receipts and the note subjoined to the Sketch if not necessary, might not be amiss; but if the President should deem them Objectionable, as being more than the resolution required, or improper in any wise they can be left out in the fair Copy—.
