I recieved last night yours of the 13th. inst. as I have before done that of the 5th. I am sorry you have taken the trouble of sending here the books stated in your written catalogues, because my collection being already very great comprehends many of them, and my time for reading too small to make it worth while to procure more. it is possible that some of those in the written catalogues may...
Th: Jefferson presents his salutations to mr Reibelt. he understands from mr Reibelt’s letter of the 16th. inst. that he still has two copies of the Sentimental journey sur petit papier Velin. it is the Petit format size which Th: Jefferson regards rather than the quality of the paper, because he happens to have all the works of Sterne in petit format, except his sentimental journey. if...
I recieved last night your favor of the 7th. the Sentimental Journey had come to hand in due time. the 3. boxes of books were recieved about 10. days ago. I have selected what I wished to take: the Secretary of state has examined them also. between us we shall probably keep about 200. D. worth. as soon as he has concluded his part, you shall recieve a list of those we take with the money, and...
Before the reciept of your last letter, the Secretary of state having compleated his selection from your books, I had repacked the residue in two of the boxes, which indeed could not be made to contain them but by putting some of the cahiers in separate places, wherever space could be found. you will therefore find some dissortment from this cause: but you will certainly find every volume...
The Manuel of the Museum & Aldini with the engraving of the K. of Prussia & the map of the US. came safe to hand. as the Annals of the Museum & the Gallery will probably cover most of the same subjects, I decline taking the Manuel, as also Aldini. the engraving is not in a line in which I meddle. the Secretary of state keeps the map and will direct paiment. the other objects are delivered to...
La continuation de Landon vols 4. & 5. except some livraisons of the 5th. and Les promenades au jardin par Poujoulx came to hand, and I shall keep them.

Your letter inclosing the two notes on the bank of deposit at Baltimore came safely to hand. I am sorry my error in putting my endorsement on the wrong note should have prevented their paiment. the bills are now re-inclosed with that error corrected. I inclose you also the invoice of the books last forwarded in a box, that you may test by it my statement in my last.   the Secretary of state...

1804. D 1805
On my return here I found the Plutarque de la jeunesse 4. vols. and the 5th. vol. of the Plutarque d’Amyst, of which I keep the former & return the latter. when I came to examine more at leisure the Annales des Beaux arts, I found it did not give a compleat idea of the gallery of Paris, & that I had been too hasty in returning the Manuel du Museum. if therefore this last remains still on hand...
I have 10. vols. of the Quarto edition of the Oiseaux de Buffon, with planches enluminées: but they go only to plate 646. being 5. vols. of text, & 5. vols. of plates. could you undertake to import the residue of the work for me, ready bound: for otherwise binding here costs as much as the book. the books which made the subject of your last letter had been taken by the offices. I gave your...
I recieved last night yours of the 3d. the volumes of the Oiseaux de Buffon which I possess are bound in that kind of binding which has been most common in France for many years, spotted, the leaves red on the edge, and double lettered on red.   the two pieces you sent me on printing & the polytypage are so curious, & on so interesting an art, that I propose to keep them with your leave. I...
Your letters of the 3d. & 6th. had already come to hand when that of the 1st. was recieved only the last night. on recurring to my papers respecting General Kosciuzko I found among them the original patent you desire, & the plot. I therefore send them to you. they had remained here, because entirely unnecessary to the title having once been recorded. the record of title preserved in the public...
Th: Jefferson presents his salutations to mr Reibelt, and his thanks for the Communication of the Catalogues, which he now returns except 1. the Notice de la galerie des Antiques, & the Catalogues des estampes. the 1st. of these appearing to be a complete catalogue of the new acquisitions of the Museum, and the other comprehending matter new to him altogether, he begs leave to detain them a...
The box of books announced in your letter of the 17th. is recieved, and I will ask the favor of you to send the remaining volumes of the Botaniste Cultivateur, and of the Traité des Abeilles; these being among those which I shall keep. they may come by the stage.

Hearing of no vessel bound from this neighborhood to Baltimore, I have this day sent your box of books to the stage-office, directing, as I have always done, the master of the stage office to put the costs of transportation into my account. Having occasion for some book of tables, turning the present French measures & weights into the antient ones, to save one the trouble of calculation, I...
Being within two or three days of my departure for Monticello, a press of business has prevented my sooner acknoleging the reciept of your letter of the 7th. the sum appropriated by Congress for furnishing the President’s house is small in comparison of the size & wants of the house, which is very large and as yet has been very scantily accomodated. the sum now appropriated will barely furnish...
I have just time to acknolege the reciept of your favor of the 10th. & to inform you that should you continue disposed to purchase a farm in the neighborhood of Charlottesville, you cannot be better advised than by mr George Divers, & mr Thomas M. Randolph (my son in law) both of that neighborhood. I shall see them in a few days and will recommend to them attention to any request of that kind...
Your favors of the 1st. & 5th. found me here but so pressed by the accumulation of business which had awaited me, that I have not been able sooner to acknolege them. I am truly happy that you recieved satisfaction from your visit to Monticello. I feel but one uneasiness on these occasions, which is that the current of public business and the burthen of my private affairs which force themselves...
Yours of the 15th. was recieved in due time. the work on Perroquets is a very superior one, and cheap at the price you are so good as to propose. but I have never permitted myself to indulge in the luxe typographique because if one immerges into it there is no bottom to it: and for a considerable time past I have discontinued adding to my library any thing except new works of merit in real...
You were so kind as to send for my inspection formerly Michaud’s Histoire des chenes, which I returned because it was too large & unhandy rather an object of the luxe typographique than of use. if you have a smaller edition of the same work I shall be glad to receive it by the stage. if not, will you indulge me with another examination of the large one, & say what the price is. DLC : Papers of...
I have not been able sooner to acknolege the reciept of your favors of the 24th. & 31st. when I asked the favor of you to take the bust for me at 30. D. I at the same time observed I would take it at any price from 30. to 40. D. you must permit me therefore to consider the last mentioned sum as the price. at the same time I wrote to you declining accepting it as a present I wrote to desire...
Your favors of the 12th. & 14th. came together last night. you have done right in remanding to Richmond the bust &c which I consider as mine on the footing of my letter of the 3d. inst. I return you the inclosed papers with thanks for the communication. I think that respecting Zambeecari’s and Andreole’s ascension would be worthy of insertion in the public papers. I thank you for the...
Th: Jefferson presents his salutations to mr Reibelt. he has recieved & tried the bottle of Champagne, & finding it not better than what he had before, & of which he has a sufficient stock, he declines taking it with many thanks for the offer. if mr Reibelt will do him the favor of paying for the bottle, Th:J. will be thankful to him, and remember it in the first remittance to be made to him....
During the sitting of the legislature, & especially at it’s commencement it is rare that I can find a moment for my private correspondences, hence my tardiness in acknoledging the reciept of your favors of the 3d. 16th. & 19th. I had often thought on the subject you propose as to the mode of procuring German emigrants to take the place of our blacks. to this however the state legislatures are...
The difficulty of withdrawing myself a single moment from the mass of public calls on me at this time must apologise for my not having made you a remittance of the 41½ D. immediately on reciept of your letter of the 22d. I now inclose you a draught from the bank of the US. here on that at Baltimore for that sum. should you take this in your way to Winchester I shall be happy to see you; and...
I find, at length, a moment in which I can hastily acknolege the reciept of your letter of the 2d. there happens to be a vacant factorship at Natchitoches on Red river, the one which you would suit best, & would suit you best of all those within our limits. It is an antient French village, where there is a tolerable society, & the factory for the neighboring tribes of Indians, who are entirely...

Your several favors of May 8. 15. & 29. & of June 5. have been duly recieved, and I have to return you my thanks for the plate presenting a comparative table of the height of different mountains, & your own Memoir on the affairs of Germany. in one of these you request that your son of 8. or 9 years old may be entered as a cadet, & of preference in the cavalry. we can scarcely be said to have...
I was informed with sincere concern, by the Secretary at war, that your long delay in getting to your post had made it his indispensible duty to rely no longer on your going there, and to make another appointment. as he is responsible for the conduct of his officers, it is just he should be uncontrouled in the choice of them, and the rather in a country which admits no officer to recieve the...
Your letter of Mar. 28. did not get to my hands at Washington till July 7. and as I had left Parkyns’s designs of gardens at this place I was obliged to defer answering you till I came here. I now inclose it to you with many thanks for the use of it. I suspect you will find in the grounds you propose to improve on these models, in the highest degree, an obstacle which we find considerable even...
Your favor of Oct. 25. with the seed of the wild Estragon came to hand last night for which I now return you my thanks. the inclosed duplicate of my letter of Aug. 12. written from Monticello, will explain to you why your letter of Mar. 12. could not be answered until I returned to Monticello where I had left Parkyns’s designs of gardens, and that I then inclosed them to you with the letter....
Your favors of July 25. Aug. 10. 25. Sep. 1. 7. 18. have been duly recieved. the last Aviso which we sent to Europe is now daily expected to return, and it is not yet decided whether we shall send any other during the winter. but were we to do it, it would always be on such short warning as would render your profiting by it impracticable, as the notice of time, vessel, or port never exceeds a...
