Washington Oct. 29. 07.
I discover that in my message to Congress of the 27th inst. there is a verbal error in the copy sent to the House of Representatives in calling the Circuit court of Virginia by the name of the district court, which I pray you, according to usage, to permit mr Coles, my Secretary, to correct for me, by erasing the word ‘district,’ & inserting ‘Circuit.’ I salute you with great respect & esteem.
