Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Burrill Carnes, 24 February 1789

From Burrill Carnes

Nantes, 24 Feb. 1789. As requested in TJ’s letter of 15 Feb., recommends John Gallwey, “an establish’d Merchant of this City for near twenty years … a friend to America” and “a man of the strictest honor and honesty” to take his place in all matters, including that of Schweighauser & Dobrée, about which Gallwey is now totally ignorant. Carnes expects to sail this week for Baltimore and to return to France in October or November.

RC (DLC); 2 p.; endorsed. Recorded in SJL as received 27 Feb. 1789.
