From John Graham
Department of State 1st March 1810.
I had the Honor to receive this Morning your Letter of the 26th Feby covering two Packets—the one for General Kosciuszko—the other for Mr Short.
I know of no safe oppertunity now offering for France; but I presume we shall have one ere long and I will take care to avail myself of it, to send these Packets in the way you point out.
I beg you to beleive, Sir, that so far from being a trouble, it will always afford me the greatest pleasure to be in any way, serviceable to you, and that I am with Sentiments of the highest Respect & Esteem
RC (DLC); at foot of text: “Thomas Jefferson Esqe”; endorsed by TJ as received 4 Mar. 1810 and so recorded in SJL.
