Thomas Jefferson Papers

Lewis A. Pauly to Thomas Jefferson, 5 October 1812

From Lewis A. Pauly

Calf pasture 5h october 1812


under cover of the letter you did me the honor to write the 18th past, I recieved one from Mr Oster inclosing a copy of Mr Tazewell’s consultation in the case of Mae de Beauvois Which coincides in every respect with the opinion your goodness had allready bestowed on the subject; I hope the consul Will not loose any further time to have the proceedings advised immediately instituted; my recommandation to him to that effect, by this mail, gives him also some indications where, I believe, the citizenship of Mrs de Beauvois may be proven.

I am with a profound Respect.
sir Your most humble and most obedient servant

L. A. Pauly
