I anticipated the honor of delivering to you, a letter from the President of the United States; but recent information that you were absent from Monticello, and the advanced state of the season, have induced Mrs Gray and myself to defer paying our respects to you, until our return from charleston. as the letter may not be merely one of introduction, I have taken the liberty of enclosing it

With great respect Your obed serv

Wm R Gray

RC (DLC); dateline at foot of text; endorsed by TJ as received 15 Dec. 1815 and so recorded in SJL. Enclosure: James Madison to TJ, 15 Nov. 1815.
