122. ADMINISTRATION, Formalities and.—

The necessity of these abridgments of
formalities in our present distant situations
requires that I should particularly suggest to
you the expediency of desiring General Knox
to communicate to the foreign ministers himself
any matters relative to the interpositions
of his department through the governors.
For him to send these to me from
Boston to this place [Monticello] merely that
I may send them back to the ministers at
Philadelphia or New York, might be might be an injurious
delay of business.—
To President Washington. Ford ed., vi, 435.
(M. Oct. 1793)
