260. ALEXANDER OF RUSSIA, Gift of Books to.—

A little before Dr. Priestley's
death, he informed me that he had received
intimations, through a channel he confided in,
that the Emperor entertained a wish to know
something of our Constitution. I have, therefore,
selected the two best works we have on
that subject, for which I pray you to ask a
place in his library.—
To Mr. Harris. Washington ed. v, 6.
(W. 1806)
