Thomas Jefferson Papers

William W. Woodward to Thomas Jefferson, 27 April 1810

From William W. Woodward

Philada April 27th 1810.

Dear Sir,

I have sent to the care of Messrs Gibson & Jefferson, as you requested the last part of Scotts Bible. Should you have it full bound, the binder will find the General Preface in the first volume of N Testament which will be put in the first Vol. of the Old Testament when bound.

Yours respectfully

W W Woodward

The bundle is on board Capt. Lewis schooner Liberty—sails on Sabbath next.

RC (MoSHi: TJC-BC); above postscript: “Thomas Jefferson Esq.”; endorsed by TJ as received 2 May 1810 and so recorded in SJL.
