Thomas Jefferson Papers

Joel Barlow to Thomas Jefferson, 15 May 1811

From Joel Barlow

Washington 15 May 1811—

Dear Sir

I have just recd your letter of the 11th covering one containing a remittance to Gen. Kosciusko, to which I shall attend very particularly. And I thank you for the hint respecting a mode of remittance to this country.

You do not mention having recd a letter from me in reply to yours of the 16 April. There was nothing in mine that required an1 answer, & my fear of its miscarriage is grounded only on the possibility of your having occasion to think me remiss in my duty of acknowledging a favor.—

With great respect & attachment

Joel Barlow

RC (DLC); endorsed by TJ as received 19 May 1811 and so recorded in SJL.
