From James Monroe.

oak Hill, April 11, 1828.
Dear Sir,--I was much gratified to receive, within a few days past, your letter by Mr. Warner, of St. Petersburg, althoa it was of very ancient date. Entertaining for you a sincere regard, founded on our service together at a very dificult period of public affairs, it affords me a sincere pleasure to find, that after the great lapse of time which has intervened, that a corresponding sentiment still exists on your part.

I send you a copy of my memoir, which relates particularly to my claims, founded on my missions to Europe, but which also gives a sketch of the difficulties I had to encounter in those missions. You will, I am satisfied, take an interest in perusing it.

Mrs. Monroe has been seriously indisposed for more than two months, but is now on the recovery. She, and our daughter Mrs. Hay, desire their best regards to be presented to Mrs. Campbell, respecting whose health, and that of your children, they would be glad to be informed. With sincere regard and best wishes for your health and welfare,

I am, dear sir, y'rs,
