8. trunks of books No. 1. to 8.
2. boxes. globes. No. 9. 10.
2. boxes, sundries No. 11. 12. all except No. 12. well covered with tarpaulin & corded, to be forwarded to Monticello by some careful boatman who can be relied on to keep the tarpaulin side upwards to prevent injury from rain. there is also another box containing crockery ware for my use in Bedford, & specially directed on a card on the top to be sent up by mr. Couch’s boat belonging to Warren, as he will see to the safe conveyance to Lynchburg. this box is not numbered. accept my affectionate salutations.
