Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to William Davies, 21 February 1781

To William Davies

Richmd Febry.21. 1781


The want of a board of Council prevented our taking up the final arrangement of the Clothier’s duties till yesterday, the paper I sent you having contained only what was proposed to be agreed on. Unfortunately no copy of it was retained, so that I am obliged to ask the favor of you to return it if you still have it.

We have here a large number of undressed deer-skins, and no person who can dress them: if you have any body who can do it, we shall very gladly send them to you, leather breeches being much wanted for the Cavalry.

I am with much respect Sir &c.
