Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Giacomo Raggi, 1 May 1820

Philadelphia May 1st 1820—

Dear Sir

I am under the necessity of begging of your kindness, to favour me with a few lines of yours, to some of your friends in this City for reccomandation, on account to dispose of a few natural curiosities which I brought with me from Italy—as well as to encourage me in getting the Sculpture of a Monument of the Immortal Washington to be erected in this City—I am certain that by your reccomandation I shall attain this work, and they will be indebted to you for your indulgence—On the expectation that you will not dissappoint my views I respectfuly remain

Your most Obbt Sert

Giacomo Raggi
