Recipient Name Thomas Jefferson (primary)
Summary Knox argues that the Swedish neutral vessel brought into U.S. ports before August 5th is not included in the rule to restore vessels taken by privateers after that period. The appeal to the Circut Court should be prosecuted and if the ruling is unfavorable, then it might be proper to interfere by force if the President so declares.
