BE it remembered, That on the Sixteenth day of September, A. D. 1815, and in the fortieth year of the Independence of the United States of America, Thomas B. Wait and Sons, of the said district, have deposited in this office the title of a book, the right whereof they claim as proprietors in the words following, to wit:

"State Papers and Publick Documents of the United States, from the accession of George Washington to the Presidency, exhibiting a complete view of our Foreign Relations since that timo."

In conformity to the act of the Congress of the United States, entitled " An act for the en. couragement of learning, by securing the copies of Maps, Charts, and Books, to the authors and proprietors of such copies, during the times therein mentioned ;" and also to an act entitled " An act supplementary to an act, entitled, an act for the encouragement of learning by securing the copies of Maps, Charts, and Books, to the authors and proprietors of such copies during the times therein mentioned ; and extending the benefits thereof to the Arts of Designing, Engraving, and Etching Historical, and other Prints."

JNO. W. DAVIS, Clerk of the District of Massachusetts.


The first volume of the State Papers and Publick Documents of the United States, from the commencement of the operations of the present government in 1789, is now offered to the community. The value of the five volumes of the documents since the accession of Mr. Jefferson will be much enhanced by those of a former period. The relations with foreign nations were not less interesting during the administrations of Washington and Adams, in the infancy of our federal union, than they have been under their successors.

In order to compress into three volumes the papers intended to be printed, a smaller type and closer order have been employed, and the contents of each page of the present series will exceed that of the former by at least one third.

The publishers have discovered the omission of one paper, the message of the President with documents accompanying of January 14, 1813, which should have been inserted in volume 1811-15, and shall find a place in the appendix to this series. They repeat their request to curious politicians to furnish them with papers, that deserve insertion on the principles set forth in the advertisements to the first and fifth volumes. By the same rule the present undertaking will be governed.

Boston, September, 1815.
