Thomas Jefferson Papers

José Corrêa da Serra to Thomas Jefferson, [ca. 22 March 1819]

From José Corrêa da Serra

[ca. 22 Mar. 1819]

Dear Sir

You see by the enclosed Letter that i do not forget your recommendations. I hope it goes in time, and perhaps in the form of an unasked Letter will operate better than if it had the appearance of an answer to a question on that delicate point.

RC (MHi); undated; endorsed by TJ as an undated letter received 30 Mar. 1819 from “Correa Joseph” and so recorded in SJL. Enclosure: Corrêa da Serra to TJ, 22 Mar. 1819.
