Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Lewis Littlepage, 2[1 January 1786]

From Lewis Littlepage

Paris 2[1 Jan. 1786]

Mr. Littlepage has the honor to present his most respectful compliments to his Excellency. He regrets that some indispensible affairs will not permit him to receive his Excellency’s orders in person before his departure, which will take place tomorrow.

As Mr. Littlepage requested that the answers to the letter which he had the honor to lay before Congress might be transmitted to the Minister of the United States at this court, he intreats his Excellency to forward them to him, under cover to Pierre Blanc Banker, at Warsaw.

RC (DLC); MS mutilated; date partly torn away. Not recorded in SJL. The letter was the one that had caused the controversy between Jay and Littlepage in New York; see Jamieson to TJ, this date.
