Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to Nathaniel Anderson, 19 May 1793

To Nathaniel Anderson

Philadelphia May 19. 1793.

Dear Sir

Two or three days before the receipt of your favor of the 11th. inst. (which I received yesterday only) I had received a letter from Colo. Gamble asking me to patronize his proposals to Mr. Genet on the same subject with what is mentioned in your letter. I do not know that I can be of use to either of you in this case, tho I wish to be so in this and every other case. I do not know what will be Mr. Genet’s plan: however if it should admit of communications between him and me, you may rely on my rendering the justice due both to yourself and Colo. Gamble. I rather imagine that the operations for the last crop are pretty well over. I am with great esteem Dear Sir Your most obedt. humble servt
