James Monroe to Thomas Jefferson, 7 May 1814

From James Monroe

washington may 7. 1814.

Dear Sir

The bearer Mr McCullock of Baltimore was introduc’d to me by a particular friend there, with a request that I would make him known to you. He is the son of the collector of that port, & represented to have made considerable progress in the knowledge of natural history, for which science he is said to have much taste and a strong passion. He has studied medicine1 in Phila, & passed the examination with credit. He intends making a visit to the western country, with a view to his more favorite study.

I hope soon to have the pleasure of seeing you in Albemarle. Some affairs keep me here for the present, but they do not menace a very long detention.

with great respect & esteem yr friend & servt.

Jas Monroe
