Washington April 12. 1826
At the request of our Excellent friend Mr Monroe, I have the honor to forward to you, enclosed, a copy of a report of a select Committee of the House of Representatives of the UStates, on several items of claim which arose out of his Missions abroad, and of which the peculiar circumstances in which he was placed have heretofore prevented the adjustment; and, I do this with the more pleasure as it affords me an opportunity to renew to you assurances of my best wishes for your continued prosperity and happiness.
RC (DLC). Docketed by JM.
