From André Limozin

Le Havre, 19 Jan. 1788. Wrote to TJ on 11th and “took the Freedom to enclose a Copy of a Letter I had received with orders to charter a Large Ship for New york, and beg’d your Excellency’s informations on that matter.” Has since received TJ’s letter of the 13th and its enclosure. Barrell of rice was only delivered this day, but since Captain Jenkins was obliged by contrary winds to put back into harbor, he has promised to take the greatest care of the rice. The packet is just arrived from New York.

RC (MHi); 2 p.; endorsed. On the enclosed copy of a letter, see note to Limozin to TJ, 10 Jan. (not 11th as stated) 1788.
