Thomas W. Maury to Thomas Jefferson, 31 October 1820

From Thomas W. Maury

Charlottesville 31st October. 1820

Dear Sir.

My relation William Maury of Liverpool will be here in a few days1 on his way (thro the States of Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama & Mississippi) to New-Orleans. I have lately received a letter from him, in which he requested me to ask the favor of you to give him letters to a few of the distinguished men in those states. Should you find it convenient to do so, be good enough to send the letters to me, to the care of Mr James Leitch of this place.

respectfully yr mo: obt

Th: W. Maury
