From Thomas Jefferson
Nov. 18. 1802.
Will you give the inclosed a serious perusal, and make such corrections in matter & manner as it needs, & that without reserve, & with as little delay as possible, as I mean to submit it in like manner to the other gentlemen, singly first, & then together. The part respecting the treasury department is not yet prepared. A concluding paragraph is also to be added, when we see if any other matter is to be inserted.
