24 July 1803, Havana. Encloses a letter he received “from a Mrs: Mary Elam relative to her Son.” Does not know “her place of residence”; believes “from the nature thereof” that JM will “Cause it to be forwarded.” “The persons to whose care I have directed it, have given a certificate relative to Rd. Elam,1 a copy of which you have at foot.” Appends a copy of the statement certifying “that Richard Elam was born in the County of Chesterfield State of Virginia,” signed by R. M.
