Thomas Jefferson to James Monroe, 29 August 1816

To James Monroe

Monticello. Aug. 29. 16.

Th:J. to Colo Monroe.

I sent to mr Divers to-day to ask a dinner for mr Correa, Dr Wistar, mr Gilmer & myself for tomorrow. I did not venture to add your name and mr Rush’s not knowing your convenience; but I am sure he will be rejoiced to see you both. Affectionate salutations to yourself & mr Rush.

RC (DLC: Monroe Papers); dateline at foot of text; addressed: “Colo Monroe.” Not recorded in SJL.

In a letter to André Daschkoff written 7 Sept. 1816 at Charlottesville (ViU), José Corrêa (correa) da Serra mentioned his visit to Monticello and stated that he expected to be in Philadelphia within ten or twelve days.
