Montpellier Sepr. 20th 1808
If you gave attention to Turreaus letter of Aug. 31 you will have seen in its stile & some of its remarks an arrogance which ought not to pass wholly unnoticed. That I may commit no error in the answer, I inclose the draft of one under an unsealed cover to Mr. Graham. You will either forward it directly to him, with your own corrections, or return it to me to be corrected according to your directions, as you may find most convenient.
Yours with respectful Attacht.
