Washington 27th April 1826.
Jeromus Johnson, Burton White, Nicoll Fosdick and Henry Ashley, members of the house of representatives from the state of New York, are about to visit Virginia; and they propose to do themselves the honor of waiting upon you. I beg leave to present them to you, in this manner. They are gentlemen distinguished equally, by their personal merits and their public stations. With perfect respect, I have the honor to be, Sir, Your most obedient servant,
RC (DLC). Docketed by JM.
