Thomas Jefferson to John Dortic, 23 May 1811

To John Dortic

Monticello May 23. 11.


I recieved yesterday your favor of the 16th inst. & by this day’s post I inclose it to the Secretary of state, for his information and that of the Secretary of the Treasury. I suppose it probable they will avail themselves of your kind offer, to get dispatches to France should they have present occasion. I avail myself of this opportunity of renewing to you the assurances of my respect

Th: Jefferson
