IXTROD rCTOR Y NOTE.



This Supplementary Calendar of Letters to and from
Jefferson is rendered necessary by the accession of
certain manuscripts from the Library of Congress, in
1S!T, three years after the publication of Bulletin No.
8. containing the second part of the Calendar of the
original Jefferson collection in the custody of the Bureau
of Rollsand Library. In December, 1897, the Librarian
of Congress delivered these additional papers to the
Department of State with the following statement:

These Jefferson papers were .sent to the Joint Committee on
the Library, with others, upon an application of the heirs to have
returned to them the papers of a private nature, which had been
in possession of the Government pending the selection of material
to be published. An examination of all the papers resulted in the
return by the committee of a selection of the papers which were
unquestionably private, to Miss Sarah X. Randolph, representing
the heirs, leaving all which were of a -public nature, or partly
public and partly private, in the hands of the committee.

There are, for official reasons as a matter of admin
istrative convenience separate!} calendared here, also,
many letters (duplicated to a certain extent in the
Department s current tiles) which appeared only in
groups in Bulletin No. <S, being anonymous letters;
letters from C. AY. F. Dumas, and letters from the
heads of the several Executive Departments during
Jefferson s administrations, entered under their proper
names, as well as addresses to the President com
mending his administration and asking him to accept
a third term, which were lately acquired from another
bureau of the Department. Finally, this number of
the Bulletin contains an index of the three parts of
the Jefferson Calendar contained in the Bulletin, Nos.
f>. 8. and 1<>.
