Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Francis Coffyn, 2 May 1788

From Francis Coffyn

Dunquerque, 2 May 1788. Acknowledges TJ’s letter of 28 Apr. 1788. No ships being available for Le Havre, has sent the four boxes of plants overland “by the way of St. omer to the care of my friends Messrs. Broucq freres of that place,” recommending that they forward them immediately. Hopes they arrive safe; expenses too trifling to notice.

RC (MHi); endorsed; in SJL Index TJ incorrectly attributed this letter to Zaccheus Coffyn.
