From Thomas Jefferson to William Duane, 10 October 1802

To William Duane

Washington Oct. 10. 1802.

Dr Sir

You know the arrangements which were communicated to you early in July for procuring books for Congress from London and Paris. unfortunately, mr Short, to whom the business was confided in Paris, was come away. I have therefore to ask information from you of the steps you have taken as to Paris1 that I may be able to give proper directions to mr Livingston to do what mr Short had been desired to do in this matter. Accept my best wishes and salutations.

Th: Jefferson

PrC (DLC); at foot of text: “Mr. Duane”; endorsed by TJ in ink on verso.
