George Washington to Thomas Jefferson
[16 March 1791]
My dear Sir
Enclosed is the last letter I have received from Messrs. Deakins and Stoddart.—What step had I best take to bring matters to a close with Burn's, and by declaring at once the site of the public buildings, prevent some inconvenience which I see may arise from the opinions promulgated by Mr. L'Enfont? as much probably from complaisance as judgment.—Yrs,
RC (DLC); addressed: “Mr. Jefferson”: endorsed by TJ as received 16 Mch. 1791.
