Thomas Jefferson to Albert Gallatin, 23 June 1817

To Albert Gallatin

Monticello June 23. 17.

Dear Sir

In a letter of the 6th inst. I took the liberty of troubling you with a part of my annual correspondence at Paris. the remainder, not then ready, I now take the liberty of putting under your cover as a supplement to the trouble then given. not knowing where Baron Humboldt is I must ask the favor of you to add the necessary address. nothing new having occurred since my last, I can only repeat the assurances of my affectionate esteem and respect.

Th: Jefferson
