From Alexandre Maurice d’Hauterive
New York, 13 Oct. 1793. Duty obliges him to forward the enclosed letter and sheets, received by sea with the envelope missing in an open packet addressed to him, but which apparently belong to TJ, whose name and titles appear at the foot of the letter.
RC (MHi); 1 p.; in French; in a clerk’s hand, signed by Hauterive; at head of text: “Le citoyen hauterive à Mr. thomas Jefferson Secretaire d’état au département des affaires étrangeres”; endorsed by TJ as received 9 Nov. 1793 and so recorded in SJL. Enclosure: Grand & Cie. to TJ, 24 June 1793.
TJ wrote a brief note from Germantown on 10 Nov. 1793 thanking Hauterive for the “packet he was so kind as to forward to him which was very interesting to him” (PrC in DLC).
