Dear Sir

I duly received your favor of May 25. and the specimens of the oak leaves, which I immediately sent to Mr. Genet. The blocks of the wood could not be found out till the day before1 yesterday. They are also sent to the same gentleman, with whom I shall with pleasure render you any services in my power. I have the honor to be Sir Your most obedt. & most humble servt.

This day TJ wrote a letter to William Foushee which acknowledged his letter of 23 May 1793 but was otherwise nearly identical to the one above (PrC in DLC; at foot of text: “Dr. Foushee”); and another to Daniel L. Hylton of the same purport except for its acknowledgment of Hylton’s letter of 21 [i.e. 24] May 1793 (PrC in DLC, at foot of text: “Mr. D. L. Hylton”; Tr in DLC, 19th-century copy).
