Thomas Jefferson to Mathew Carey, 1 September 1816

To Mathew Carey

Monticello. Sep. 1. 16.

Sir

Mr Correa has favored me with a copy of your catalogue of Dr Priestly’s library, on which I have found the articles underwritten, which I will pray you to forward to me, or such of them as remain on hand, to Richmond to the address of Messrs Gibson & Jefferson merchants there, who will pay the freight. I believe there are few weeks or days without a vessel sailing from Philadelphia for Richmond. so soon as you will be so good as to inform me of the amount of those on hand & forwarded, it shall be remitted to you. Accept the assurances of my continued esteem & respect.

Th: Jefferson
