Thomas Jefferson Papers

James W. Wallace to Thomas Jefferson, 8 July 1814

From James W. Wallace

Fauquier July 8th

Dear sir

The Gentleman who was to have deliver’d Mrs Mason’s bundle at Charlottsville, has declined his Journey—Mrs Wallace in my absence sent a boy to Monticello with it, the boy was taken sick & returned, leaving the bundle at Major Claytons Culpeper CHouse—I have sent the Saw of a fish, which I hope will be acceptable.

My best wishes to the Monticello family Mrs & Mr Bankhead
God bless You sir

James W. Wallace
