To Thomas Jefferson from Edmund Randolph, 4 May 1787

From Edmund Randolph

Richmond May 4. 1787.


Being on the point of my departure for Philadelphia, I have only time to inform your excellency, that the information given you by me in my last letter, concerning the bayonets, which were supposed to remain at Havre appears now to be without foundation. I am Sir with the highest respect yr. mo. ob. serv.,

Edm: Randolph

RC (DLC); endorsed. FC (Vi, Executive Letter Book). Not recorded in SJL, and presumably not received until late July or early Aug. 1787, though Randolph’s of 3 May 1787 was received as early as 30 June (see TJ to St. Victour, 7 Aug. 1787).

My last letter: That is, Randolph’s letter of 28 Jan. 1787.
