Benjamin Morgan to Thomas Jefferson, 22 March 1811

From Benjamin Morgan

New orleans 22 March 1811

Dear Sir

I defered answering your letter of the 29th October last until I could get Lieut Robt Peyton here hoping his presence was all that was wanted to settle the administration of his brother John’s Estate. He arrived last week and it now appears that he must have a power of Attorney from the Coheirs &ca as stated in the above memorandum—

Please to forward these documents and I will do all in my power to close the business which in my opinion has been protracted here very unreasonably—

I am with much respect and esteem Your most obt Servt

Benja Morgan
