Thomas Jefferson to John Graham, 26 February 1810

To John Graham

Monticello Feb. 26. 10.

Dear Sir

The inclosed letter to Genl Kosciuzko covers a confidential one from myself, as also a letter & bill of exchange from mr Barnes, remitting the profits of his funds in this country. a safe conveyance therefore is all important. I know of none which can be trusted, but such as you may embrace for your public despatches to Genl Armstrong. will you do me the favor to put it under the same cover with those of your office to Genl Armstrong, & let it go by the safest opportunity which occurs. I ask the same as to the letter to mr Short. I pray you to pardon this trouble which I am obliged occasionally to give you, & to be assured of my great esteem & respect.

Th: Jefferson
