From Samuel Clarke
Philadelphia, 2 Sep. 1790. Encloses a letter from Captain Nathaniel Cutting that will most probably advise TJ of a keg of seed rice he was given charge of by Cutting at St. Marc. At Captain Pultey’s request he has lodged the rice here with the merchants James & Shoemaker subject to TJ’s order.
RC (MHi); 1 p.; at foot of text: “Honorable Mr Jefferson”; endorsed by TJ as received 6 Sep. 1790 and so recorded in SJL. Enclosure: Nathaniel Cutting to TJ, 6 July 1790.
