To Thomas Jefferson October 6, 1800

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:

"To the union of America with the Powers of the world in order to guarantee the freedom of the seas." (The original is in French).

T. P.
