|Sir||New Orleans 7. February 1806|
I learn from Captain Turner, that the Marquis of Casa Calvo did not visit Adais, nor is it understood, that he made Enquiries concerning the Posts; of which he spake to me.
The proposition for a military Gentleman to accompany the Marquis to Adais, came from me; but since the arrangement was not approved, I am well pleased that the visit was not made. I am Sir, with respect & Esteem Your humble Sevt.
William C. C. Claiborne
