Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Cambray, 29 September 1788

From Cambray

Chateau de Villers aux Erables, 29 Sep. 1788. Wrote about two months ago to ask TJ to attest letters of procuration and an affidavit required of him by Carolina. These were sent TJ by his notary in Paris, M. Aleaume. Asks that TJ forward the documents so that he can close this matter.

RC (DLC); 2 p.; in French; endorsed. Cambray wrote on 8 Aug. 1788 and TJ, misunderstanding Aleaume’s request of 16 Aug. 1788, forwarded the documents to South Carolina (see TJ to Petry, 21 Aug. 1788).
