5485. MONROE (James), Orleans governorship.—[continued].

I wish you were here at
present, to take your choice of the two governments
of Orleans and Louisiana, in either of
which I could now place you; and I verily believe
it would be to your advantage to be just
that much withdrawn from the focus of the
ensuing contest, until its event should be known.—
To James Monroe. Washington ed. v, 11. Ford ed., viii, 448.
(W. May. 1806)
