Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to Lewis Alexander, 31 May 1786

To Lewis Alexander

Paris May 31. 1786.


Not knowing who is Agent for the United States at Bayonne, or whether there be one, I take the liberty of inclosing to you a copy of a regulation lately made by government here on the subject of tobacco. As it is highly interesting to all persons concerned in the commerce of that article, I must beg of you to take the trouble of making the most immediate and general publication of it possible in that port. I have the honour to be with great respect Sir your most obedient and most humble servt.,

Th: Jefferson

PrC (DLC). Enclosure: See Vergennes to TJ, 30 May 1786.
