Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Gabriel Christie, 5 December 1806

Baltimore Decr 5th 1806


  Your letter of the 3d inst. respecting the Wine came to hand upon inquiry of Mr. Purviance’s son I found one case lodged in his Vault directed for you which I presume from its’ size is the one that containd the 32 bottles the other that had but two bottles in it cannot be found I imagine that as one of the bottles was brokin the other case may have been packed up in the large case. I have had it brought to the Custom House and new [corded] and shall forward it to you by the first Packet that sails to Washington which I expect will be in a few days, Whin it’s shipped shall enclose a bill of loading for it should I be upon further enquiry able to find the other case care shall be taken of it untill its is forwarded

Accept Sir tender of my respects and remain your ob Svt 

G Christie
