Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to Nathaniel Cutting, 1 September 1789

To Nathaniel Cutting

Sep. 1. 1789. Paris

Mr. Jefferson will be much obliged to Mr. Cutting to send the inclosed letter by the first vessel going to any part of America from New York to Norfolk. He begs him to accept his compliments.

RC (CtY); addressed: “A Monsieur Monsieur Cutting chez M. Wheatcroft negociant au Havre.” Not recorded in SJL. In his reply of 3 Sep. 1789 Cutting identifies the enclosure as “a Letter for Alexander Donald.” No such letter has been found and none is recorded in SJL: TJ evidently sent his letters to Eppes and Lewis of 29 Aug. 1789 under cover to Donald.
