Dear Monroe, I would like you to go to France and offer Napoleon 10 Million dollars for the Floridas, and port of New Orleans
I know I was not told to accept an amount this large, but I understand the significance and importance of this. Therefore, I will accept in best interest of the country. I believe Monroe will agree and finalize the deal with me
As you can see, because of Monroe, and Livingston's decisions, America had practically doubled, just for an extra 5 million dollars than what they were originally paying for a fraction of the land.
