To James Madison from Thomas Jefferson, 24 August 1807

Monticello Aug. 24. 07.

Th: Jefferson to J. Madison.

I presume the two commissions of militia officers in the District of Columbia which you enclosed yesterday, were meant as resignations. I have sent them as such to the War office.

I was misinformed as to the name of the person appointed Secretary of Orleans. Altho always called Bolling Robertson it seems his name is Thomas Bolling Robertson. Will you be so good as to order a new commission, & that the record of the other be cancelled. Affte. salutns
