From Thomas Jefferson to Robert Gamble, 18 August 1793

To Robert Gamble

Philadelphia Aug. 18. 1793.

Dear Sir

Having just received information from Mr. Archibald Campbell merchant of Baltimore of the arrival there of 14. cases of claret for me, I have taken the liberty of desiring him to forward it to Richmond to your address, he drawing on me here for the freight to Richmond. I take this liberty because you will best know of the conveyances up to Monticello, to which place I would pray you to send it by the first safe conveyance. I had meant also to take the liberty of addressing to you from this place some stores, of which I shall have occasion on a visit I shall make to Monticello, soon after the stores will go from hence. Consequently shall have to pray your forwarding them also as speedily as can be done safely as I know it is not every waggoner who merits to be trusted. After asking your excuse for the freedom of this trouble, I conclude with assurances of the esteem & respect of Dear Sir Your most obedt humble Servt
