Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from R. Macarty, 18 March 1789

From R. Macarty

Paris, 18 Mch. 1789. Thanks TJ for transmitting a letter from her husband; asks when she may write to him, as she has “des chose de tres grande consséquence à lui faire passé,” and requests that any other letters for her be addressed “à l’hotel de toulouse, Rüe des vieux augustin.

RC (ViWC); 1 p.; endorsed. Not recorded in SJL, but a second letter from Mrs. Macarthy (missing) is there noted as sent from Paris 8 Apr. 1789 and received the same day. On 18 Feb. 1788 William Macarty of L’Orient wrote TJ of a plan to go to America and the East Indies (in Vol. 12: 604 erroneously referred to as the West Indies) to recover his losses. The letter from him to Mrs. Macarty may have been sent to TJ subsequently.
