To Thomas Jefferson October 6, 1800

From the original letter at the Library of Congress.

Dear Sir

I enclose you a piece to serve as an introduction to two other pieces which you will receive by the same Conveyance. I observe the Consul Le Brun at the entertainment given to the American envoys gave for his toast.

“À l’Union de l’Amérique avec les puissances du Nord pour faire respectre la liberté des mers.”
