To Lewis A. Pauly

Monticello Sep. 18. 12.


I have recieved a letter from mr Oster with a copy of an opinion of mr Tazewell in the case of M. de Beauvois, very much in conformity with what I wrote to you. I presume the inclosed letter covers a copy of the same opinion for you. should it not, if you will be so good as to drop me a line saying so, I will forward to you my copy, that the proceedings advised may be immediately instituted. Accept the assurance of my esteem & respect

Th: Jefferson

PoC (MHi); at foot of text: “M. Pauly”; endorsed by TJ.

The inclosed letter from Martin Oster to Pauly, [ca. 29 Aug. 1812], not found, contained a copy of the enclosure to Oster’s letter of that date to TJ.
