To John Vaughan

May 16. 1791.

Th: Jefferson presents his compliments to Mr. Vaughan. He has sent one of Argand’s double lamps to Mr. Bringhurst to have wickracks fixed to it, and has directed him to deliver it to Mr. Vaughan, when done, for the use of the Philosophical society whose acceptance of it he asks. He presumes that if suspended over the middle of the table it will sufficiently light it.
