Summary:
Enclosing statutes prohibiting exportation of enumerated tools used in manufacturing. "I have transcribed this catalogue, because I think it is very proper that gentlemen should attend to it. It shews the spirite of this country towards the United States and summarily comprehends a volume of politics for us." "I think it would be worth while for our American academies to make collections of (these tools) for their museums, such a collection would be a great curiosity, and more profitable to our country than a more costly collection of shells, birds, (etc.)."
