Monticello May 8. 07.
I return you Monroe’s letter of Mar. 5. As the explosion in the British ministry took place about the 15th. I hope we shall be spared the additional embarrasment of his convention. I inclose you a letter of Michl. Jones for circulation & to rest with the Atty. Genl. It contains new instances of Burr’s enlistments. I recieved this from Mr. Gallatin, so you can hand it to Genl. Dearborn direct. I expect to leave this on the 13th. but there is a possible occurrence which may prevent it till the 19th. which however is not probable. Accept affectionate salutations.
