To Thomas Jefferson

Montpellier Feby. 12. 1818

Dear Sir

I have recd. yours of the 6th. inclosing the letters to & from Dr. Cooper, and forward the former by this days mail, the first that has offered. The relinquishment of our claim on him was unavoidable, and but reasonable, and it could not have been made known to him in more suitable terms.

RC (DLC). Fragment. Remainder of text, closing, and signature clipped. Docketed by Jefferson, “recd. Feb. 17.”
