Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from André Limozin, 9 November 1787

From André Limozin

Havre de Grace, 9 Nov. 1787. Acknowledges TJ’s letter of 7 Nov., transmitting a letter to John Jay to be delivered to “Mr. Stuart American Passenger who is to take his Passage on board the Packet for Newyork”; has sent his clerk to locate that gentleman, but, after two hours searching, he has not been found. Has succeeded in making “Mr. Ruellan” pay the expenses for the lawsuit of the six American sailors who were on board the ship Elephant; the sailors are “very happy that they have found with me such a warm protection”; asks opinion on the continuance of peace.

RC (MHi); 4 p.; addressed and endorsed. Recorded in SJL as received 11 Nov. 1787.

TJ’s letter to Limozin of 7 Nov. has not been found and is not recorded in SJL; it was evidently only a covering note for TJ to Jay, 7 Nov. 1787, q.v.
