|Dear Sir||New Orleans 13th. Feby 1806|
A Gentleman of this City lately handed me for perusal a manuscript copy in Spanish of a little work called the Geographical & Political Tables of Baron Humbold dated in Mexico in 1805. As I know not whether this work has ever been printed I take the Liberty of sending you a Copy of the Extracts I made under an impression that every thing relating to Mexico will now be particularly interesting to you.
I beg to offer my compliments to Mrs. Madison & to express a hope that her Health is perfectly reestablished. With Sentiments of the Highest Respect I have the Honor to be Sir Your Mo: Obt Sert
