THE reprinting of Volumes I and II of these letters has afforded me an opportunity to correct various slips of my own or of the printer, particularly the typographical errors in page 406, line 5, page 794, line 25, page 796, line 6, and page 797, line 33. New information has also made necessary the revision of several notes. Thus Letter 861, as the new headnote shows, should be dated Late December 1797.
Recently there have come to light the holographs of several additional unpublished letters belonging to the years 1795-1806, as well as the manuscripts of certain letters previously published in the present volumes from printed sources. These letters will be found in Volume VI, Appendix B. Letter 148, which in Volume I is conjecturally dated 8 November 1796, bears the date ' November 5th 1796' in the manuscript.
