JEFFERSON WRITES TO HIS FRIEND IN NEW YORK HENRY REMSEN TO DELIVER NEWS TO ROCHEFOUCAULD. Here, Jefferson arranges a late payment of a debt, and enclosing a letter (not present) to Liancourt [de Rochefoucauld] which "will gladden his heart and no man better merits good tidings." The letter (which has never been located) apprised Liancourt of the imminent arrival in New York of Colonel Monroe, according to the Duke's response of June 30th. Liancourt spent the years 1794-1797 in the U.S. during his exile from France, and Jefferson remained very sympathetic to his plight. Henry Remsen, Jr. served as Jefferson's executive secretary during his administration.
