Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from the Abbés Arnoux and Chalut, 13 November 1785

From the Abbés Arnoux and Chalut

Paris, 13 Nov. 1785. Extend dinner invitation to TJ and his party for that day on the part of Chalut de Verin of the Farmers General; they hope “qu’il ne lui restera aucune raison de refus.”

RC (MHi); 2 p.; dated: “dimanche 12. 9bre. 1785”; addressed. Since 12 Nov. 1785 fell on a Saturday, the date of this letter has been corrected to the 13th. TJ evidently had declined the invitation for Friday, 11 Nov., but if he did so in writing, the letter has not been found.
