Nicolas G. Dufief to Thomas Jefferson, 1 September 1814

From Nicolas G. Dufief

A Philade ce 1er Septembre. 1814

Monsieur,

Il m’a été impossible, Jusqu’à présent, de vous procurer l’ouvrage d’Evans. Je continuerai mes recherches. Vous avez du recevoir le 1er & 2d vol. de mon dictionnaire & l’histoire des Shakers

Plusieurs Personnes Sont venus me trouver, d’après vos lettres, pour me prier de leur compter les petites Sommes qui leur sont dues J’ai promis de les leur envoyer dès que Mr Gibson (a qui J’ai ecrit en reponse à une de Ses lettres dans laquelle il me demandait de quelle maniere il devoit envoyer l’argent) m’aura fait passer un draft Sur Philada ou des billets de Banque de cette ville ou de New York qu’il peut facilement Se procurer à Richmond, la Somme n’étant pas considérable

Agreez, Je vous prie, les assurances du profond respect avec lequel j’ai l’honneur d’étre

Votre très-humble Serviteur

N. G. Dufief

Philadelphia 1 September. 1814

Sir,

I have been unable so far to obtain for you the work by Evanson. I will continue to look for it. You must have already received the first and second volumes of my dictionary and the history of the Shakers

Several people came to see me, after receiving your letters, to ask for the small sums due them. I have promised to pay them as soon as Mr. Gibson (to whom I wrote in response to a letter in which he asked me how he should send the money) provides me with a draft on Philadelphia or bank notes from this city or New York, which he can easily obtain in Richmond, the amount not being very large

Please accept the assurances of the profound respect with which I have the honor to be

Your very humble servant

N. G. Dufief
