Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from John B. Benson, 24 December 1819

Dear Sir

Be pleased to accept my thanks for your Kind Present, of the two Guinea Fowls—this, is the first opportunity I have met with, to acknowledge the receipt of them.

I send you by the Bearer a few Fredericksburg Oysters—tho the quantity is small. I trust the quality is Great.

I have sent You Sir half of what I received, I wish I had more to present you with—

May you enjoy, uninterupted Happiness, is my fervent prayer

J B Benson
