To Thomas Ritchie

Monticello Sep. 3. 16.


I have just had sight of a statistical document so very curious that I am exceedingly anxious to obtain a copy of it. it is entitled ‘a statement of the revenue tax for the year 1815 arising on lots land and other property’ a two sheet table printed in your office. if you can procure me a copy you will greatly oblige me. Accept assurances of my friendly respect.

Th: Jefferson

PoC (MHi); on verso of a reused address cover from David Higginbotham to TJ; at foot of text: “Mr Ritchie”; endorsed by TJ.
