To Thomas Jefferson from Bernard McMahon, 28 February 1809

Philadelphia Feby. 28th. 1809

Dear Sir,

I have the pleasure of sending you by the mail stage a collection of Flower seeds, some Early York & Sugarloaf Cabbage, Red Celery, Long French Turnep (Navet de Freneuse) so much and I think so justly admired, for its flavour, in France, together with 8 Quarts of Leadman’s Dwarf Peas; they are contained in a small box address’d to you, and will reach you at the same time of this letter.

Price of the 8 Quarts Peas $4 .—
Paid freight at the Stage Office .50
$4 .50

Our ground being yet covered with snow and bound by the frost, renders it impossible to get the Strawberry or Gooseberry plants up; but, as soon as possible, I shall send them, addressed to any place and person that you will please to point out to me. I herewith enclose you one of my catalogues, and shall be happy to supply you with any articles therein mentioned, and in my power to furnish at the time. I am Sir,

Very respectfully, Yours, &c.

Bernd. McMahon
