Montpellier April 5th. 1828.
Do me the favor to have the enclosed handed to Genl. Cocke, if he should be at your Court on Monday: if not, to let it go on to him by the mail. I take this occasion to thank you for the statement sent me for the gentleman in Kentucky. It came in good time, and ought not to have been allowed to interfere with any of your official attentions. With great esteem & friendly respects
