numbers about to suit his plan of editing. Why then can he not put
in the year and month dates?"

Two hundred copies were printed, some of which have a
draught of a "Fundamental Constitution of Virginia." This edition
of Mr. Jefferson's celebrated "Notes" was evidently printed in
Paris ; but as Mr. Jefferson did not reach France until the year
1784, the date on the title probably is not that of the year in which
it was printed, but of the year in which the manuscript was com-
pleted. A copy presented to M. Malasherbe had the following note
in Mr. Jefferson's handwriting : "Mr. Jefferson having had a few
copies of these notes printed to present to some of his friends, and
to some estimable characters beyond that line, takes the liberty of
presenting a copy to M. de Malasherbe, as a testimony of his respect
to his character. Unwilling to expose them to the public eye, he
begs the favor of M. de M. to put them into the hands of no person
on whose care and fidelity he cannot rely to guard them against
publication." Rich, i, 301. The proof sheets of this work, with
corrections in the handwriting of the author, are in the New York
State Library at Albany. Sabin.

Contains an eye draught of Madison's cave and folded table of
Indian tribes.
