25. Appendix to BA, “The Convention of 1800 with France,” 44 MHS, Procs.
377, 429 (1910–1911). Because the stitching in JA's paper booklet recording the evidence wore away long ago and allowed the leaves of the MS
to get out of order, BA printed some of the testimony in an improper sequence; the order of the documents in the Adams Papers microfilms
is also wrong. What is with little doubt the correct order of the evidence on both sides has been restored below. See also note
