To Steuben

Richmond Feb. 16. 1781.


I received the inclosed letter last night and took the liberty of informing Colo. Loyauté that I would let you know of the offer of his services and that he is here, as you could best judge in what line they might be useful.

I have the honour to be with much respect Sir your most obedt. sert.,

Th: J efferson
