Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to Lewis de Belair, 28 June 1819

Monticello June 28. 19.

I thank you, Sir, for your attention in sending me your catalogue which I now return. I do not find any thing in it of which I am in immediate want. indeed the total stagnation in all money transactions prevailing at present renders it prudent for every one to suspend all new engagements until we see business get again into motion, and indicate it’s future I should otherwise have been tempted to take your Stephanus at 75.D. at some future time should it be still on your hands I may find convenient too ask for it; but not at present. accept my salutations & assurances of respect.
