To Thomas Jefferson from Anonymous, 24 November 1805

“Now the coat was without seam; woven from the top throughout.”

St. John.

This burnouse is Tunisian manufacture—& is the upper dress of the nobility and men of fortune at audiences and visits—It is probably of finer texture than the “White raiment” alluded to in the text; but undoubtedly of the same mode—Hence the mystery of the spotless raiment without seam.
