ALS signed "Jas. Monroe," one page, 7.75 x 9.75, May 28, 1815. Letter to George Graham, written while secretary of state. In part: "You will have rec'd the brevet comm. with my signature before this reaches you. Maj. Taliaferro of King George County, the son of James, has not rec'd his warrant for the military academy, which I thought had issued in July, & was given to Col. Goodwyn. Will you be so good as send it to him, or a duplicate…I have written to Col. Bankhead, and advised his acceptance of the arrangement made for him, & hinted that it was possible that as satisfactory evidence of his meritorious service, he might be brevetted to a higher rank. I heard from many that his conduct was highly meritorious." He adds a brief postscript at the conclusion, "My health continues to improve." In fine condition, with intersecting folds (partial separations repaired with tape to reverse).
