Thomas Jefferson to Nicolas G. Dufief, 20 March 1814

To Nicolas G. Dufief

Monticello Mar. 20. 14.


I possess the Abbé Auger’s translations of Demosthenes, Aeschines, Isocrates, and the Minor orators in 9.v. 8vo but he published also a translation of Lysias in a single vol. which I have not. can you help me to it? it is some time since I have squared accounts with you. be so good as to send me a note of what I am in your debt and it shall be remitted immediately. I must still request you to keep in mind my former unsatisfied commissions. the book on brewing from Indian corn, particularly, if yet published will be acceptable. I salute you with esteem and respect.

Th: Jefferson
