Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from John V. Kean, 19 June 1825

U. of Va. June 19th 25


There arrived here Friday, 3 boxes of Books from Hamburg amounting in all to 5 or 600 Vols wholly German; I presume your health would not allow it, if you felt inclined to undertake the labour of arranging them—Dr. Blætterman has commenced & will complete it. Shall these works be arranged, under the chapters to which they belong, on the shelves with the old set; or be kept separate untill another supply comes in?

Your desires on the subject shall be executed to the best of my ability.—

With hopes for your speedy recovery I remain sir, very respectfully,
Your’s &

John V. Kean
