5484. MONROE (James), Orleans governorship.—

When mentioning your going to
New Orleans [as Governor], and that the salary
there would not increase the ease of your situation,
I meant to have added that the only considerations
which might make it eligible to you
were the facility of getting there the richest
land in the world, the extraordinary profitableness
of its culture, and that the removal of
your slaves there might immediately put you
under way.—
To James Monroe. Ford ed., viii, 290.
(W. Jan. 1804)
