Th: Jefferson presents his compliments to Mr. Vaughan and incloses him a copy of a letter he has just sent to Dr. Smith. There was so little within his particular knowlege, worthy of being noted in memory of Dr. Franklin, that he communicates it only in proof of his respect for the desire of the committee who did him the honor of calling on him, and of whom Mr. Vaughan was one. RC ( PPAP );...
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.

A French gentleman (Monsr. De Rieux) a neighbor of mine whom I much esteem, having had a legacy left him by a relation in France, his friends, on account of the depreciation of their paper medium, thought it better to invest the money in goods, and to remit it in that way. They consisted in glass of various kinds, ribbons &c and were to leave Havre in May last addressed to Monsr. Hombert of...
M. Vaughan informs Mr. Jefferson that he has purchased Bills for about 15,000 Dollars and expects in an hour to complete the 20,000. He wishes to know to what order they are to be drawn, and as the parties only draw to answer pressing demands, M. V. will request that he may know as early as Convenient this morning, where to send for the money. 3000 13,000 Willing Morris & Swanwick 400  1...
Th: Jefferson presents his compliments to Mr. Vaughan, and finding that the Pragers do not draw at present, he must endeavor to procure any other good bills on London or Amsterdam to a smaller amount for the present moment. If Mr. Vaughan can recommend him any (say to amount of 5000.D.) the drawers having property here to secure us, and not dealing in paper, he will oblige Th:J. Can Mr....
I received some time ago from you the inclosed paper, but not being certain of the precise point of the enquiry intended, I meant to have had the pleasure of seeing you. In the mean time the malady of the town prevents it, and occasions my setting off for Virginia tomorrow. I presume it might be to know something of the value of the lands: but on this subject a more ignorant person could not...
Not knowing how far the inclosed address may serve to give a certain conveyance to the letter, I have thought it safest to put it under your cover, not doubting that your communion with the person would enable you to procure it a sure passage to it’s destination. I am with esteem Dear Sir Your friend & servt PrC ( DLC ); at foot of text: “Mr. John Vaughan.” Enclosure: TJ to Benjamin Vaughan,...
I inclosed you by last post a letter meant for your brother . It was in answer to one I had recieved, signed James Martin. I begin now to suppose it possible that letter may not have come from your brother. If you have forwarded him mine, it is well as it is immaterial whether it goes to him or you send it back to me. But do not let it go to any hands but his or mine. Perhaps I may write you...
I have duly recieved your favor of the 13th. you very truly state that your suggestion that the term of the marshal of the district of Delaware was near expiring first brought my attention to that circumstance: that I asked if you knew of any person proper for the appointment & who would accept of it; that you said you did not. I then begged that you would consider of it, & would on your...

Coxe. on my arrival at Monticello in July I recieved from Dr. Waterhouse of Cambridge some vaccine matter taken by himself, and some which he at the same time recieved from Dr. Jenner of London. both of them succeeded,...
