To Thomas Jefferson from Alexander Garrett, 26 January 1819

Thursday morning 26th Jany 19.

Dr Sir

I now send you Latrobes price book: Mr. Dinsmore yesterday mentioned to me that he had heard with regret, that you were dissatisfied with the contract made with him, and beg’d me to assure you, that he would take no advantage of any mistake you may have made in that contract, that he will be entirely satisfied to work by the printed prices of the book now sent you. not even insisting on the correction of those by Latrobe.

You have no doubt learnt that the University bill passed the Senate on saturday last by a vote of 22 to 1.

I present you with a rock fish, of which I beg your acceptance

Respecty Your Obt St

Alex: Garrett
