Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from David Gelston, 5 September 1806

New York Sep: 5th. 1806


I had the honor to write to you the 1st instant. I now enclose Capt. Skinners bill of lading for the three boxes wine—the Harmony being bound direct to Alexandria, and lying very near the Jersey, I was unabled to order it directly from one vessel to the other—

I have written to the collector at Alexandria to forward the wine immediately to Washington—

with great respect, I am, Sir, your obedient servant

David Gelston
