Thomas Jefferson to Bernard Peyton, 18 February 1818

To Bernard Peyton

Monticello Feb. 18. 18.

Dear Sir

I have taken the liberty of addressing to your care by mr Carr’s boats a plough to be forwarded to mr Peale in Philadelphia, and a box of seeds to be forwarded by water to Dr Hosack of N. York, for the botanical garden there, being the articles I formerly mentioned to you that I should be likely to trouble you with. I am glad of every occasion of assuring you of my friendship & respect.

Th: Jefferson
