Dept. of State 29th Augt. 1816
I now forward a Copy of Mr. Monroe’s Official Letter to Mr Harris. I have been obliged to run it off in haste but I believe it is correct. The other Copies which Mr Monroe directed to be sent to you were forwarded by the Mail of yesterday.
You will, I presume, have heared from Mr. Crawford himself, that he had returned to this City. With Affectionate Respect I am Dear Sir Your Mo. Obt. Sert.
