To Thomas Jefferson from William C. C. Claiborne, 6 April 1806

New Orleans April 6. 1806.

Dear Sir

  I have the honor to introduce to your acquaintance, Major Fortier, an Inhabitant of this City, and a very useful and worthy member of our Society.

  Major Fortier has acted as one of my Aid de Camps from the period of my first arrival in this City, to the present day—and I have found in him the character of an active officer, a good american, and an honest amiable young man.

With sentiments of great respect, I have the honor to be, Sir, Your faithful friend—

William C. C. Claiborne
