§ From John Dawson

29 October 1803, Washington. “Some time ago I intimated to you my willingness to go to New Orleans, and reflection has not chang’d that disposition, provided I can be plac’d in a situation not subordinate.… The length of time I have been in public life, the situations I have been placd in, and the conduct and principles I have supported are well known to you and to Mr. Jefferson.”
