This is Daniel Coney's personal copy of the 'Documents Accompanying The Message of the President of the United States to the Two Houses of Congress at the Opening of The Third Session of The Eleventh Congress on December 3, 1810.

In this pamphlet that accompanied the message to the congress in 1810 is part of the story of the War of 1812, the continuing problems over the Louisiana Purchase, the annexation of West Florida, 'trouble on the high seas', and even a translation of a decree by Napoleon issued on March 23, 1810. Reading this pamphlet is an insight into what was going on around the world - as seen by the United States government in 1810. Daniel Coney has signed the pamphlet in the top right corner of the pamphlet and at least one other place on the interior pages.
