Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Peter Burtsell, 4 January 1822

New York 4th Jany 1821


I had the pleasure of receiving by mail your letter of 19th Ulto in which you note having received the Copy of ‘Coltors Lacon’ which I had taken the liberty of sending to you—

It was intended by me as a small tribute of respect to me of my countrymen who had taken so distinguished a part in her History

It is very gratifying to me that you have done me the honor of accepting the Book—on a further perusal I hope you will find matter to amuse you and less of Paradox & puzzle

I am Sir very respectfully Your obt ser

Peter Burtsell
