To Thomas Jefferson from David Gelston, 4 April 1805

New York April 4th. 1805

Sir,

By the Ship Independence, from Leghorn, I have received a letter from Mr. Appleton, enclosing bill of lading for two boxes tuscan wine, said to contain one hundred bottles—

When opportunity offers I shall ship them to Alexandria or Georgetown, unless, you direct otherwise—

I have the honor to be, with great respect, Sir, your obedient servant

David Gelston
