The publishers confidently believe, that the undertaking in their proposals will be considered as honourably ful. filled, so far as this part of the work could include the papers contemplated to be printed. Of the rule by which they have been governed in their labours it may be necessary to say a few words; rather, however, to show what was excluded than what was introduced under it. Such documents, as the following, the publishers have not thought proper to include, because they were thought not so much connected with the subject of our relations with foreign powers, as our domestick economy.
President's message of January 12, 1802, laying before Congress "a letter from the Secretary of State, containing an estimate of the expenses necessary for carrying into effect the convention between the United States of America and the French Republick.”
A letter from the Secretary of the Navy to the Speaker of the House of Representatives, January 23, 1802, enclosing “ copies of the instructions heretofore given by this department to the commanders of vessels in the publick service-authorizing the capture of vessels belonging to the French Republick."
