Washington Mar. 13. 07.
Your favor of the 2d. inst. was recieved in time to be delivered here to Capt. Clarke (now Genl. Clarke) together with a list from the Philosophical society of the bones of the Mammoth which they want. these are chiefly the bones of the head & foot. they also ask the bones of one or more distinct animals of very large size, which are known to be mingled with the others. I gave in charge to Genl. Clarke to suffer no abuse of your indulgence to take place. I return you thanks, in behalf of the Philosophical society, for the permission & accomodations you have been so kind as to give us, and add my respectful salutations & assurances of esteem.
