why would Thomas Jefferson, a very open supporter of the metric system, write a report using standard measurements and weights?
The U.S. does not now, or has it ever, regulated
the use of the "standard" system over the "metric" system, so it's not like it was
He felt so strongly in opposition to the standard method that he even developed and submitted to congress a method similar to the current metric
system before the French ever invented their own and put it to use.
Just struck me as odd...could be a fake?
