From Thomas Jefferson to James Monroe, 14 January 1793

To James Monroe

Jan. 14. 93.

Th: J to Col: Monroe

I am a stranger to the instructions given to Mr. Short on the subject of money, the correspondence thereon having been [direct?] between the Sec. of the Treasury and him, without any mediary. Neither do I know whether any authority was given or not to G. Morris on that subject. The payment of the 19th. of Aug. was made in consequence of a letter from G. Morris as I have reason to believe. Whether that letter could be an order or not I am uninformed, but it probably was either authoritative or of decisive influence.

PrC (DLC); faded.
