Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from David Ross, 2 March 1807

Richmond 2d March 1807


I had the honor of receiving your letters dated 24th. Ulto—I delayd answering for a short time in expectation of desiring some information on refering to the Correspondence of my Agents respecting the Mammoth bones at the Great bone Lick—

I am glad the Philosophical Society have made considerable progress in connecting a skeleton of that wonderfull animal and I fondly hope Capt. Clark will be successfull in obtaining such bones as may render it complete—I have written by this days Post to my Agents in Kentucky & have taken the liberty of enclosing a letter for Capt. Clark with Copies—If I can render any further assistance it will give me pleasure—

I have the honor to be with great Respect & regard Your very huml Servt

David Ross
