Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Miguel de Lardizábel y Uribe, 30 May 1787

From Miguel de Lardizábel y Uribe

Madrid, 30 May 1787. Since he has received no reply to the letter he wrote on his arrival in Spain, he writes again to inquire about TJ’s health, and to express appreciation for his many courtesies. His earlier letter mentioned that he had put the copying press into Carmichael’s hands; has been almost constantly at court, and so unable to procure the books TJ desired, but promises to do his utmost. Sends compliments to Short, and gives Madrid as address.

RC (MHi); 2 p.; in French; endorsed. Recorded in SJL as received 23 June 1787. Lardizábel’s previous letter has not been found.
