§ To John Page

26 March 1803, Washington. “General Muhlenberg the collector at Philada. informs me1 that a Box containing a Model, and addressed to Governor Monroe has been left at the Custom house there by a vessel which lately arrived. He wishes to know in what manner he is to dispose of it. Presuming that the address was meant for the Govr. of Virginia, I take the liberty of giving you this information, with a view that you may give the proper orders in the case.”
