Author: Monroe, Elizabeth Kortright
Abstract: His uncle James Monroe thinks he should come for the week-end to visit with them, as well as Fanny sister?; mentions "the last number published by Lockharts Sir Walter ?" and refers him to that for advice; hopes he has enough respect for her to follow her advice and uphold the name of "James Monroe," listing the following concerns: continuing to refrain from consuming liquor; always paying in full so as to not go into debt; refraining from gambling; avoiding attachments with women; not spreading rumors; attending church, reading the Bible and praying; trusting no one until he knows they can be trusted; and keeping family affairs private.
