Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from David Gelston, 1 September 1806

New York September 1st. 1806


I have this day received a letter from Mr Appleton (Leghorn) by the Jersey, Capt. Blasse in which he informs me he has shipped three boxes containing ninety five bottles Genoa wine and a box of medicines, I shall do all the needful with the wine—but the medicines being subject to ad: val: duty, it is necessary to have an invoice or the cost; I have received no invoice, nor bil of lading—the wine I shall forward to Washington or its vicinity first proper opportunity.

very sincerely yours

David Gelston
