Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to Ezra L’Hommedieu, 22 December 1791

To Ezra L’Hommedieu

Philadelphia Dec. 22. 1791.


Be pleased to accept my thanks for your favor of Sep. 10. and the valuable information procured thro’ your means. I am confident it will be found to throw more light on the subject of the Hessian fly, than any thing I have before seen. The committee appointed for that purpose will probably find it necessary to continue their enquiries and observations through another year. I take the liberty of putting under your cover a letter to Messrs. Dering and Havens, & am with great esteem Sir Your most obedt. humble servt,

Th: Jefferson
