Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to David Gelston, 5 November 1806

Washington Nov. 5. 06.


Your favor of Oct. 9. was recieved in due time, & the articles mentioned in it are safely arrived. I now inclose you a draught of the US. bank here on that at N.Y. for 13.50 D which covers your account of 11. D. for duties &c, and I have taken the liberty of including with it 2.50 D for a mr D. Frazer of N. York author of a book entitled the ‘History of Man’ printed by Southwark & Hardcastle N.Y. I have taken this liberty because I have no means of conveying to the author so small as sum as 2. D 50 C separately. Will you be so good as to have that sum put into his hands? Accept my friendly salutations & assurances of great esteem & respect.

Th: Jefferson

MHi: Coolidge Collection.
