Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to Thomas Claxton, 2 March 1806

Washington Mar. 2. 06.


Mr. James Ronaldson of Philadelphia has sent me a number of samples of Philadelphia manufactures in wool, cotton & thread. among these I observe a cotton blanket No. 30. 99 I. by 90 I. at 9. dollars the pair. I must ask the favor of you to send to him for 4. pair of them for the President’s house, & to make him the proper remittance. I have not his address, but suppose he may have something to do at the Alms house, as he sent me specimens of their manufacture. the blankets should be packed in a box to keep them clean, & might come within the stage. Accept my best wishes
