Description
Is extremely anxious to obtain the clerkship of the Washington papers; Bentley in London would publish the edition as soon as he could prepare it; the time opportune for an indexing and arrangement of Washington's papers to make them safe from curious plunderers; the office hitherto a sinecure; if appointed he would make it one of ten or twelve hours daily work, following the plan of Calendars of British State Paper Office; hears of much dissatisfaction as to the Jefferson papers; the public want no more selections, but the complete works.
