Thomas Jefferson Papers

Thomas Jefferson to James Monroe, 6 October 1818

To James Monroe

Oct. 6. 18.

Th:J. to the President of the US.

I recieved last night a letter from Cathalan of Aug. 13. informing me he had just recieved some boxes of wine for me from Sasserno, who, of course was then living: but he had not yet recieved his Consular commission. it will be better therefore to await further information, and the rather as, if he be dead, I shall be sure to hear it from Cathalan or Spreafico. perhaps indeed it might be well to send a duplicate of Sasserno’s commission. affectionate salutns

RC (DNA: RG 59, MLR); dateline at foot of text; addressed: “The President of the US. Highland”; docket, in an unidentified hand, reads in part: “Duplicate forwarded.” Not recorded in SJL.
