To James Madison from James Monroe, 11 June 1803

From James Monroe

Paris June 11. 1803.

Dear Sir

I forward the inclosed1 to Havre in the hope it may find Mr. Jay there & be conveyed with our other dispatches by him. I shall now decide in a few days on the question relative to my trip to Spn. & inform you of it by the first opportunity. I shall certainly not go unless I find I may with safety as to things here & with some hope of advantage there. The French are in complete possession of Hanover by capitulation. A son of the King of Engld. who was there it is thought has got out of the way.2 Yr. friend & servant

Jas. Monroe
