Dear Sir

Mr Dearborn Collector of Boston writes me that he had recieved for me a small parcel of grass seeds (Lupinella) sent me by mr Appleton our Consul at Leghorn, which he should forward to you by a Coaster in a few days. I will ask the favor of you to deliver them when recieved to Messrs Gibson & Jefferson who will pay whatever is due on them, and will forward them to me. Accept the assurance of my great esteem & respect.

Th: Jefferson
