Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to Daniel L. Hylton, 29 June 1792

To Daniel L. Hylton

Philadelphia June 29. 1792.

Dear Sir

Your glasses are this day sent off by the Schooner Relief Capt. Welsh bound for Richmond, in a box marked dh. They have waited because I thought they would go safer with a number of packages of my own, than if sent alone. I am impatient to learn that all papers are duly executed with respect to the Elk hill lands. I am with great esteem Dear Sir your friend & servt.

Th: Jefferson

P.S. The captain delivers my things to Mr. Brown and perhaps your box also.

PrC (MHi); at foot of text: “Mr. Hylton.”
