      A faithful report of the decisions of
the Supreme Court of the united states is
of great importance to the public, & I should
exceedingly regret, any interference with your
rights as Reporter. So far as I have any right
in the opinions delivered by me, at the late
session of the Court, I hereby, freely and
fully transfer it to you.
                                          With great respect,
                                                Your humble servant
                                                      John Mclean

[Richard Peters Esq]
