From Thomas Jefferson to George Jefferson, 6 April 1805

Monticello Apr. 6. 05.

Dear Sir

Your favor of the 2d. is recieved & I thank you for the admonition as to my tobo. I shall hand it on to my overseer with a proper charge. I should be for holding out for 7.D. unless you should foresee a permanent fall of price. I expect there are or will very soon be with you the following articles

10. packages from Washington sailed Mar. 17.

5. Nos. [No. 1. being 12. bands] from Phila. sailed Mar. 20.

a pipe of wine from N. York sailed Mar. 21.

80. bundles nailrod from Phila. sailed Mar. 31.

the first & second parcels I should be anxious to recieve before I leave this, which will be on the 14th. The wine should come by the most trusty hand; the nailrod by those we usually employ. my painter, now at work here is so much in want of the articles on the next page, that I must pray you to procure them in Richmond & forward them by the Milton stage which will be leaving Richmond immediately after you recieve this. Accept affectionate salutations.
