    United States: REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE OF WAYS AND MEANS, ON CERTAIN APPROPRIATIONS FOF [sic] THE DIPLOMATIC DEPARTMENT. 5TH MAY, 1800, COMMITTED TO A COMMITTEE OF THE WHOLE HOUSE TO-MORROW. PRINTED BY ORDER OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES OF THE UNITED STATES. [Philadelphia: 1800]. 21, [1 blank] pp. Disbound [loosening]. Minor spotting, Very Good. The Committee objects to the provision of public funds to defray litigation expenses of American citizens seeking recovery of their "captured property, before the tribunals of foreign countries." But the Committee recognizes "that it would be improper, to withhold this allowance too suddenly." These expenses are itemized, as are funds disbursed "in affording Relief and Protection to distressed American Seamen." Evans 38859.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
