John Graham to Thomas Jefferson, 5 May 1809

From John Graham

City of Washington 5th May 1809.

Dear Sir

The inclosed was written on the day I received the Letter you did me the Honor to write me—accident prevented its going by the last Mail; but I hope it will yet be in time to inform you of the Residence, and to give you the name of the Gentleman who promised you the wild Geese. I have written to him as you requested, and I beg you to beleive, Sir, that I shall always be proud to receive and execute your commands—

With Sentiments of the most profound Respect I have the Honor to be—Your Most Obt Sert

John Graham

RC (DLC); at foot of text: “Thos Jefferson Esqr”; endorsed by TJ as received 7 May 1809 and so recorded in SJL. Enclosure: Graham to TJ, 27 Apr. 1809.
