Nice work U of Virginia! You can access the papers here. I hope this makes it into the FDLP digitization registry.
More than 200 years after they were written, some 5,000 previously unpublished documents of the founders of the United States — including Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and James Madison — are at long last available to the public at no cost.
The Documents Compass group of the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities at the University of Virginia has spent much of the last year proofreading and transcribing thousands of pages of letters and other papers.
The documents are now available online for free at the University of Virginia Press’ digital imprint called Rotunda...
...The online project is a federal pilot study that aims to expand public access to the papers of America’s founders. It is funded by a $250,000 grant from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission, which is a division of the National Archives.
[Thanks Resource Shelf!]

I'm looking for as complete a list as possible of various non-English language newspapers published in California.
The best site currently for a listing of all California newspapers is the catalog of the California Newspaper Project. By using the Key Words box on the catalog, you can search any language name, such as Chinese or Russian or Spanish. It gives you a list of holdings in libraries all over California.
Another good, old fashioned resource is the Newspapers In Microform: United States, published by the Library of Congress. It gives a good inventory, city by city, of newspapers, and the microfilm holdings nation wide. The holdings statements are out of date, but it's still a very good list of what was published where, and when.
