To Thomas Jefferson from Collins & Perkins, 1 March 1809

New York 3rd Mo. 1st. 1809

Esteemed Friend

We are this morning favoured with thy letter inclosing five dollars, and requesting us to send thee Smiths Abridgment of John Bell’s Principles of Surgery.   We are under a little embarrassment how to act, in consequence of that work not having yet been published—and will not for some months. We, however, conclude to place thy name on the list of Subscribers; and, unless otherwise directed by thee, will retain the money remitted for the copy, which shall be sent as soon as it is published

We remain thy friends

Collins & Perkins
