Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Christian Mayer, 18 June 1806

Baltimore, 18th. June 1806.


By request of Mr. Reibelt, my Partner (Capn. Brantz) sent me from Leghorn a parcel of that species of Maiz called “Quarantina”. When Mr. Reibelt left this City for Natchitochés, he directed me to send some it to You, Sir; which I have done by this morning’s Mail-Stage. The Corn is contained in a small linen Bag, with a direction on a Card.

I have the honor to be, with the highest respect, Sir, Your most obedient & most humble Servant

Chran. Mayer.
