George Washington to Thomas Jefferson, [8 March 1792]

From George Washington

Dear Sir

I do not recollect whether any notice has been taken in your letter to the Commrs. of Mr. Johnsons suggestion of bringing the Canal navigation to the City. The ascertainment of the practicability ought by all means to be encouraged.—Yours,

RC (DLC); addressed: “Mr. Jefferson”; endorsed by TJ as received 7 Mch. 1792. The error in date was probably TJ's; Thursday occurred on 8 Mch. 1792.
