To James Monroe

Mount Vernon 25 June 1794

Dear Sir,

I expected to have put the enclosed1 into your hands at Baltimore, on my way to this place; but you had left it in the morning of the day I got there.

I now beg leave to trouble you with the delivery—or the forwarding of it.

I hope you & Mrs Monroe have had a pleasant passage, and are well.2 My best respects attend her, and I am Dear Sir Your Obedt & Very Hble Serv.

Go: Washington
