Monticello Sep. 13. 05
After my letter of yesterday was sent to the Post office, I recieved one from mr Jefferson of Richmond informing me that the fish had just come to that place, having passed circuitously to it. I hope you will recieve the present by the same post with yesterday’s so as that I may have given you no further trouble respecting this. Accept my thanks for your attention to this matter and my friendly salutations.
