Thomas Jefferson Papers

James Monroe to Thomas Jefferson, 16 April 1811

From James Monroe

Washington April 16. 1811.

Dear Sir

The minister of Russia, Count Pahlen & his brother, having intimated their intention to make you a visit at Monticello, I have taken the liberty to give them this introduction. The publick character of these respectable foreigners, would, I well know, secure them your kind reception, & friendly attention, but you will be gratified to know that they have high claims from personal merit.

I am dear Sir with great respect your friend & Servant

Jas Monroe

RC (DLC); endorsed by TJ as received 21 Apr. 1811 and so recorded in SJL.
