Thomas Jefferson to Joseph Milligan, 1 June 1815

To Joseph Milligan

Poplar Forest June 1. 15.

Dear Sir

I keep at this place a small Polygraph which requir[es] paper exactly of the size of that now inclosed. I must ask the favor of you to send me a ream of that size. the quality too of the model is much liked, altho’ perhaps we do not make any such. I shall be glad also of another ream of 4to letter paper for use at Monticello. that I now write on is about a good size. these may be packed and come on with the books you have to bind for me. send on at the same time if you please a copy of Dufief’s French & English dictionary in 3. vols. I salute you with esteem and respect.

Th: Jefferson

PoC (DLC); edge trimmed; at foot of text: “Mr Joseph Millegan”; endorsed by TJ. Enclosure not found.
