Wythe to Thomas Jefferson, 1 January 1796
George Wythe says that the general assembly is looking to print and organize their acts. He tells Jefferson that those who have to do the work are not finding it enjoyable, but if Jefferson is able to send his copies, it will make the work easier. Wythe asks Jefferson to let him know how he will be sending the copies if he can find them.
The general assembly, at their late session, enacted that a collection of the laws, public and private, relative to lands, shall be printed. those who are appointed to perform the work, despair of doing it, without your aid. If you will permit your copies to be sent hither, i will be answerable for their restitution in the same order as when they shall be received. be
be so good as let me know, if the copies may be obtained, in what manner they may be forwarded, with least inconvenience. Farewell. Richmond 1 of january, 1796.
