From Thomas Jefferson to Benjamin Waterhouse, 14 January 1802

To Benjamin Waterhouse

Washington Jan. 14. 1802.

Dear Sir

The inclosed letter was written to you on the day of it’s date. I wrote to Dr. Currie of Richmond on the same day. by mistake I put your letter under his address, and probably I put the one for him under cover to you. he has returned the one addressed to you, which discovers to me my mistake. I forward it now to you for the purpose of rectifying it with you. Accept my respects and best wishes

Th: Jefferson

PrC (DLC); at foot of text: “Doctr. Waterhouse”; endorsed by TJ in ink on verso. Enclosure: TJ to Waterhouse, 25 Dec. 1801.
