To Thomas Jefferson from John B. Benson, 24 December 1819

Dear Sir

Be pleased to accept my thanks for your Kind Present, of the two Guinea Fowls—this, is the first opportunity I have met with, to acknowledge the receipt of them.

I send you by the Bearer a few Fredericksburg Oysters—tho the quantity is small. I trust the quality is Great.

I have sent You Sir half of what I received, I wish I had more to present you with—

May you enjoy, uninterupted Happiness, is my fervent prayer

J B Benson
