To James Monroe

Richmond May 15. 1781.

Dear Sir

I have lodged with Mrs. Sherrar a small box of books containing Chandler’s debates of the lords and commons (one volume lost) and the Historical register of which I beg your acceptance.

I am just now setting out to Monticello where I shall be happy to see you at all times, should health or curiosity lead you thither or a willingness to give that pleasure to Dr. Sir your friend & humble servt,

Th: Jefferson

RC (Anonymous, 1949): without indication of name of addressee, which has been assigned from internal evidence (see TJ to Monroe, 5 Oct. 1781).
