I have been favored with a printed copy of the Report of a Select Committee of the Senate on a proposed amendt of the Constitution of the U. S. Inferring from an appearance on the Envelope, that I am indebted for the communication to the politeness of the Chairman, I beg leave to make my acknowledgments accordingly. And in doing it, I ought not to suppress the remark, that whatever differences of opinion may exist as to the plan of amendment in question, there can be none as to the ability and advantage with which it is presented in the Report. Be pleased to accept Sir the expression of my high respect
